About Us

Our aim
Our aim is to foster interdisciplinary approaches to the study of ethical dilemmas and social controversies in science and professional practice.

There are three distinct characteristics of our work:

  1. The Centre is engaged in research which pushes the boundaries of our understanding of complex social and ethical issues.
  2. We employ an interdisciplinary research approach which utilises ideas from applied ethics, the sociology of science, and human- animal studies.
  3. We are particularly interested in the interconnections between work in applied ethics and work in science and technology studies.
