Oxford Martin School
The innovation that is the Oxford Martin School has been made possible through the unique foresight of James Martin. His commitment to this project makes him one of the most significant drivers of academic enterprise today. BEP is one of the 15 research institutes that make up the Oxford Martin School, each looking at a different aspect of the challenges that face us today.
Future of Humanity Institute
BEP's sister James Martin project, also located at the Faculty of Philosophy.
Oxford Bioethics Network
Oxford Bioethics Network promotes world-class interdisciplinary research by leaders in ethics, law, and the medical sciences.
Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics
The Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics was established in 2002 with the support of the Uehiro Foundation on Ethics and Education of Japan. It is an integral part of the Faculty of Philosophy of Oxford University, one of the great centres of academic excellence in philosophical ethics.
Oxford Centre for Neuroethics
Neuroscience studies the brain and mind, and thereby some of the most profound aspects of human existence. In the last decade, advances in imaging and manipulating the brain have raised ethical challenges, particularly about the moral limits of the use of such technology, leading to the new discipline of neuroethics.
The Ethox Centre
The Ethox Centre is dedicated to enhancing patient care by improving ethical understanding and ethical standards. From the beginning the Ethox Centre has combined multidisciplinary research, education and ethics support to health services and medical researchers. Each of these activities supports the others and there is no clear dividing line between them.
HeLEX is a new interdisciplinary centre researching law, policy and practice in the governance of health and emerging technologies. Our current research focuses on genomics with an emphasis on global governance, privacy, data sharing frameworks, biobanks and translational research.
