The London Bioethics Colloquium kicks off on October 10th with Dr Octavio Ferraz!

We are delighted announce the schedule of the London Bioethics Colloquium (previously KCL/UCL Joint Bioethics Colloquium) for the next academic year – please find it below.

The first speaker of the year will be Octavio Ferraz:

10 October 2016, 16:00-17:30
King’s College London, Strand Campus, Somerset House East Wing, SW1.17 (Ante Room)

Octavio Ferraz (King’s College London): Who should we treat? Rare diseases, universal health coverage and children’s right to health

For those of you who have attended the colloquium in previous years, there are two relevant changes.

First, we are relaunching the colloquium as the London Bioethics Colloquium so as to broaden the range of speakers and speakers. We remain committed to promoting exchange between bioethicists working at King’s and UCL, and we will continue to alternate sessions between both universities. But we are keen to foster the variety of both speakers and topics — and to make clearer that the Colloquium is a resource for bioethicists all over London.

Second, for the next academic year, we have had to shift the colloquium from the first Thursday of the month during term time to the first Monday of the month. The sessions continue to be held from 16:00-17:30 with the possibility to go for drinks afterwards.
