Centre for Research Ethics & Bioethics (CRB)

The Centre for Research Ethics & Bioethics (CRB) is a multi-disciplinary research environment with senior and junior staff from ethics, philosophy, medicine, nursing, economics, law and other fields. Our research questions arise in close collaboration with researchers, scientists and clinicians.

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.

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.
