Invasive procedures, engineering and innovation

Colleagues in the Centre are undertaking research into the ethical and legal issues surrounding surgery and surgical innovation.

The Centre’s research in this area encompasses work on novel, contested surgeries (such as ‘face transplants’ and the surgical separation of conjoined twins), surgical research, and surgical innovation.

Working closely with colleagues in the Bristol Centre for Surgical Research and Biomedical Research Centre, Centre staff have published and presented widely on these topics.
