Join us for an open interdisciplinary biomedical-ethical discussion on Organ Transplantation and Xenotransplantation.
A surgeon, a hospital pastoral assistant, a theologist and a researcher give different perspectives about human nature, medical, ethical and scientific issues involved in organ transplantation and future outlooks with xenotransplantation:
- Prof. Dr. Reiner Anselm, Theology and Ethics, LMU
- PD Dr. med. Helmut Arbogast, Surgical Polyclinic, LMU University Hospital
- Heidemarie Hürten, Pastoral Center in the LMU University Hospital

Open to students and researchers – all are welcome!
The discussion will be conducted in German (questions in English are also welcome). We will close with an informal get-together.
