The Ethox Centre is a multidisciplinary bioethics research centre in the University of Oxford’s Department of Public Health. It aims in all its activities to be close to practice and seeks to engage with ethical issues faced by real world actors in real world settings. An implication of this is that the Centre places particular value on approaches to research bringing together empirical social science research and ethical analysis.
The Centre’s research activities focus on four areas: global health ethics; clinical ethics; public health ethics; and research ethics. More information about the research currently being carried out at Ethox can be obtained by following the links below:
