While more than 10,000 people in Germany are desperately waiting for a donor organ, the number of organ donors decreases every year. In 2017, it was 797, the lowest number in twenty years. What are the reasons for people’s reluctance to donate organs? Is it due to a lack of education, advertising or trust in the system? Do we need new incentive systems or might new rules increase people’s willingness to donate? Are there alternative research approaches that could make human-to-human organ donations superfluous? Join us for the discussion!

Guests

Dr. Solveig Lena Hansen, Department for Medical Ethics and the History of Medicine, University of Göttingen
Dr. Axel Rahmel, Medical Director, German Organ Transplantation Foundation (DSO)
Prof. Dr. Bruno Reichart, Spokesperson, interdisciplinary DFG Transregional Collaborative Research Center on Xenotransplantation

The discussion will be moderated by Christoph Koch (Stern) and Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim (freelance science journalist).
