The Kavli Centre for Ethics, Science and the Public

Fostering global conversations on the ethical issues raised by cutting edge science

The Centre is a unique collaboration between the University of Cambridge and Wellcome Connecting Science, with funding from The Kavli Foundation.

Major scientific breakthroughs deepen our understanding of nature and ourselves. Such discoveries have the potential to transform our everyday lives. Yet the same science that holds promise for progress often raises concerns and questions for society.

Under Centre Director Anna Middleton, Deputy Director and Research Lead Richard Milne and Innovation and Translation Lead Catherine Galloway, we are starting with conversations around genome editing of embryos, artificial intelligence in health research, and the sharing of Big Data.
