Bobbie Farsides, Professor of Clinical and Biomedical Ethics, has been selected to join the Department of Health's Emerging Science and Bioethics Advisory Committee (ESBAC).
Chaired by Professor Sir Alistair Breckenridge, the committee will be responsible for providing advice to UK health departments on emerging healthcare scientific developments and their ethical, legal, social and economic implications.
Professor Farsides said: "It is a great honour to have been appointed to this important new committee, and I very much look forward to working with the Chair and fellow members. I’m expecting the work involved to be demanding, but also stimulating and rewarding. It is very important that scientists and ethicists work together to construct ethical frameworks that are fit for purpose and that allow us to move forward".
