Centre for Research Ethics & Bioethics (CRB)

Future issues

Evaluation of ethical issues have to be made in a systematic and informed manner, based on sound research and scholarship.

Multi-disciplinary research

We investigate the ethical, philosophical and legal aspects of biomedical research and clinical practice and publish the results of our research in international peer-reviewed scientific journals and in books.

CRB is a multi-disciplinary research environment and our research topics originate from close collaborations with clinicians, researchers and scientists outside the centre. We work with clinical ethics, with a special focus on nursing ethics and the ethics of care. We are also involved in research ethics, where we have been working with the ethical and legal issues of biobank and registry research for over a decade and more recently started looking at how we should handle risk information. We are also working on other types of bioethics research, especially neuroethics and neurophilosophy, where we are developing a 'fundamental' neuroethics.
