Course content

We have extensive international experience of research in applied bioethics, biotechnology assessment and the sociology of science and technology.

Our research is funded by the Wellcome Trust, Leverhulme Trust, European Union, BBSRC and other national research councils and charities.

The bioethics group works closely with staff across the University of Nottingham including the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, and the School of Sociology and Social Policy.

We have experience supporting interdisciplinary research on applied topics, and enabling students with a wide variety of backgrounds to transition into bioethics.

Research areas

Research can be grouped into four main themes:

  • Animal, veterinary, food and agricultural ethics
  • Ethical tool/frameworks (including the Ethical Matrix)
