About ConScienceTrain

I am convinced that animal experiments in life science cannot be completely replaced.


My top guiding principle is that all animals are treated with respect and dignity.

My clients can trust that I will work with them together, to find a practical way to combine both. On the basis of trust and transparency, I would like to inspire you with my work.

Dr. med. vet. Fabienne Ferrara

Specialist veterinarian for laboratory animal science

Master of Medicine, Ethics and Law


Specialist veterinarian for laboratory animal science

Through the various professional stations at: 

- Universities

- research institutes and

- researching companies


I have practically experienced the topic and the tension of animal experiments and research from different angles and perspectives.

Master of Medicine, Ethics and Law

With my master’s degree in Medicine-Ethics-Law (Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg)  I can apply legal knowledge to ethical areas of conflict, illuminate them and provide assistance in concrete conflict situations.

The discourse with people from different professional fields is always part of personal development.

Scientific work

Through my scientific work as a veterinarian specialised in laboratory animal science with a doctoral degree, I have specialist knowledge in the field of basic and applied research.


I combine my experience from many years of working in animal research in interdisciplinary projects with the knowledge of laboratory animal science and the perspective from my work as an animal welfare officer.
