KCL / UCL Bioethics Colloquium: Upcoming Events 2014/15

We are very pleased to announce the upcoming events of the KCL / UCL Bioethics Colloquium.

KCL and UCL now have a substantial number of faculty and PhD students working in bioethics, broadly construed. This colloquium aims to facilitate high-level discussion among these scholars and link individuals and groups across KCL, UCL, and beyond.

Topics range from traditional questions in medical ethics and law to ethical issues in the design of health systems at the national and global level (public health ethics / global health ethics).

When? First Thursday of the month, 4:00 – 5:30 pm, with the possibility to go for drinks afterwards.

Where? Alternating between KCL and UCL.

Contact: Dr Annette Rid, Dr James Wilson
