Research output: Other contribution


The development and application of biological and medical research is a global endeavour. It is impossible to examine the ethical issues raised by this research without taking international contexts into consideration and engaging with experts and policy makers worldwide.

With ‘exit day’ behind us, the Nuffield Council wanted to explore how Brexit could affect the UK’s relationship with European and global bioethics institutions. Earlier this year, we convened experts in ethics, law, governance, industry and the UK science sector for a horizon scanning exercise to consider what challenges and opportunities Brexit might present for UK policy makers and bioethicists in future.
