The Scottish Council on Human Bioethics
is an independent charitable organisation composed of professionals from various disciplines associated with medical ethics. We seek to engage in current ethical issues, especially those of particular concern within Scotland, and to provide a Scottish voice on the international scene.
The site contains a range of material relating to human bioethics, which we hope will be a useful resource for those with an interest in healthcare, education and politics.
The SCHB will be providing a grant towards the fees of a student studying for the MA in Bioethics with St. Mary's University College in September 2013 to a maximum level of £2,400 (or less if the student is working part-time). The SCHB only funds students in their dissertation year and for a dissertation topic chosen by the student from a shortlist provided by the SCHB (this list can be obtained from the SCHB). Half the grant for the fees is paid at the beginning of the academic year and the other half on completion of the dissertation.
Interested students should send a CV and letter of motivation to the SCHB before the 12th of September 2013.
Introducing 'The New Bioethics: A Multidisciplinary Journal of Biotechnology and the Body'
With effect from Volume 18, The New Bioethics is the title for the successor to Human Reproduction and Genetic Ethics (HRGE). The New Bioethics seeks to reclaim bioethics as a diverse and multidisciplinary project. It provides a space for dialogue between different perspectives on biotechnology and offers the chance to find new kinds of common ground.
