Our interdisciplinary research themes
Our Beyond Bodies theme explores how ‘the body’ is understood and transformed through interaction between biomedicine and publics, and between human and health-related technologies
Our Beyond Data theme examines how data are changing the epistemic, social, ethical, legal, and economic relations of biomedicine.
Our Beyond Disease theme examines how developments in biomedicine challenge established ideas about particular diseases and raises questions about what counts as disease and how disease fits within society and culture.
Our Beyond Engagement theme critically examines different approaches of public engagement with science, biomedicine, and governance
Our Beyond Global theme explores how inequalities in power and resources affect the geographical and social distribution of health and illness and the development and implementation of health interventions across the globe.
