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.

Biobanks and registries in research
We aim for a biobank and registry management that satisfies ethical and legal demands from the research community, the public and the individual.
We are investigating risk information from serval perspectives.

Caring for patients
Nurses encounter ethical dilemmas in their daily work. But there are also moral dimensions to nursing practice.
Neuroethics & Neurophilsophy
Any attempt at understanding how the mind and the brain work comes with a set of philosophical, ethical and social issues.
Neurotechnology and direct brain communication
Welcome to a mini-symposium that will discuss new insights and responsibilities concerning speechless but communicative subjects.
Both infant brains and patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC) are at the forefront of contemporary neuroscience. The prospective use of neurotechnology to access mental states in these subjects, including neuroimaging, brain simulation, and brain computer interfaces, offers new opportunities for clinicians and researchers, but has also received specific attention from philosophical, scientific, ethical, and legal points of view.
When: October 6, 2016, 13-17
Where: BMC, Husargatan 3, Uppsala
