Based at the University of Oxford’s Big Data Institute, the Wellcome Centre for Ethics and Humanities responds to a pressing need for ethics and humanities research on the challenges presented by advances in neuroscience, big data, genomics and global connectedness, and by their convergence. The Centre provides a flexible multidisciplinary research platform capable of engaging with the new and profoundly difficult questions presented by the form, scale, scope and societal implications of these developments. Through its research and public engagement activities, the Centre aims to lead debate on the ethical requirements for scientific research and technological innovation capable both of improving health and of commanding well-founded public trust and confidence.
