The Institute for Science and Ethics (formerly known as the Program on Ethics of the New Biosciences) was established in June 2005 with funding from the Oxford Martin School. It is a research project based within the University of Oxford’s Faculty of Philosophy and is directed by Professor Julian Savulescu. The project has a multidisciplinary team, which includes expertise in medicine, philosophy, practical ethics, sociology and psychology. The program is closely linked to the Future of Humanity Institute, which is also part of the Oxford Martin School.
