Kathrin Herrmann has always felt a deep connection to other animals and their need for protection. This and her passion for medical science led to the decision to study veterinary medicine and specialize in animal welfare science, ethics and law. Kathrin currently works at the Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT), Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Baltimore, MD, USA. She is a Diplomate of the European College of Animal Welfare and Behavioural Medicine. She is also a founding member of Minding Animals Germany and of the European Association for Critical Animal Studies. For almost a decade, Kathrin worked as a state inspector trying to protect animals used in research and education, and in this way, frequently witnessed the limitations and shortcomings of animal protection laws. The current regulatory system does not properly safeguard non-human animals. To highlight the problems associated with non-human animal use in science and to show ways to work towards a paradigm change, Kathrin decided to initiate a book project. The book entitled "Animal Experimentation: working towards a Paradigm Change" features 51 experts and will be available through open access within Brill's Human-Animal Studies series by the end of this year.  Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing
