Medicine, Ethics, Society & History (MESH) are a group focused on delivering excellence in empirically-informed and policy-relevant research

MESH came together in 2011 as an amalgamation of the Centre for Biomedical Ethics and the History of Medicine Unit. Whilst we retain discrete research interests in Ethics, Law and History of Medicine, MESH allows for further cross-fertilisation of our research interests and methodologies and the development of rich interdisciplinary work.

Collectively MESH holds, and has held, research funding from: The Wellcome Trust, ESRC, EU, AHRC.

Key areas of research activity include:

MESH also delivers high quality and innovative teaching in related areas for a number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes within the College of Medical and Dental Sciences.
