Organisation profile

The Centre for Biomedicine, Self and Society (CBSS) is a multidisciplinary research centre that builds on the University of Edinburgh’s unique history of leadership in social studies of science and medicine to scrutinise the complex social, cultural and technological landscape that characterises contemporary biomedicine and health care. The Centre aims to address the pressing problems currently facing biomedicine and society, and to effect lasting change in approaches to, developments from, and perspectives on global biomedical research. To that end, our work combines novel, integrative social science and humanities research with innovative approaches to collaboration, stakeholder and public engagement. Our work is anchored in seven key research themes, each representing a key site of fundamental socio‐technical transformation in biomedicine and society. These are:

 

Beyond Disease

Beyond Bodies

Beyond Engagement

Beyond the Legal

Beyond the Global

Beyond Data

Beyond Sex
