Health and well-being

What ethical norms should guide medical practices, health priorities, emerging health technologies, and research in the life sciences?

The promotion of health and well-being, both physical and mental, raises ethical challenges in a wide variety of contexts. For instance, the use of mental health labels for school pupils, the treatment of animals in medicine testing, and the imposition of lockdowns during a pandemic all involve policies that require a careful analysis of moral costs and benefits. Researchers within this theme work across the fields of bioethics, from medical ethics and public health to animal ethics and the responsible conduct of research.

An overview of researchers, projects, key publications and examples of public engagement will follow soon.
