"Open Day" and Inauguration Ceremony on 3 July 2022
After a very smooth move in November 2020, we had hoped to celebrate our inauguration in May 2021. Due to the very strict lockdown in 2021, this hope had unfortunately not been fulfilled, and it was unfortunately not possible to plan an inauguration celebration and invite guests with sufficient advance notice for the entire year 2021. However, the wait was worth it. So on 3 July 2022, in glorious sunshine, we were able to present our now well-furnished and busy new building to our members, friends, important companions and the interested public.
In the speeches it was expressed that it is a great joy for the doctors, pharmacists and patients working with us that this building is now dedicated to anthroposophic pharmacy and especially to cancer therapy.
Over 500 people visited us on the day! There were continuous guided tours through our new building showing the whole process of producing the cancer medicinal product abnobaVISCUM - from the storage of the harvest material to the clean rooms for the production of the extracts, the flow process and filling into ampoules after sterile filtration, through quality control to packaging and distribution. In our research institute we have now set up permanent exhibitions on the natural kingdoms: the colloid formations in the mineral kingdom, the principles of formation in the plant kingdom with a focus on mistletoe, and the animal kingdom for understanding humans and cancer development.
In our laboratory we were able to give our visitors an insight into our current research work. We were also particularly interested in giving children and young people an insight into research. On this day, our young visitors were able to carry out experiments themselves.
