Biomedicine, Ethics & Social Justice

The group has a diverse portfolio of research projects.

Collaboration, consultancy and dialogue with publics, practitioners, policy makers and other constituencies underpins all work carried out in BESJ. For example, members of our research group contribute to the work of national bioethics bodies (e.g. The Nuffield Council on Bioethics, the Austrian National Bioethics Council), national research ethics policy organisations (e.g. the U.K. National Research Ethics Service), international and global health policy organisations (e.g. the WHO, the Council for International Organizations of Medical Science), as well as a range of European organisations (e.g. European Science Foundation, ESF) and NGOs.
