Centre for Biomedical Ethics
The NUS Centre for Biomedical Ethics (CBmE) was established in September 2006 in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine through a generous gift by the Chen Su Lan Trust. We work to develop understanding, capacity for good judgement, and sound ethical practice in the context of healthcare provision, biomedical science and health-related policy development.
CBmE is a thriving centre for learning, teaching and research relating to ethical and legal aspects of healthcare and biomedical sciences. We study issues of broad international significance with a particular interest in learning for and from Singapore and Asia.
We have a diverse staff who bring a valuable range of disciplinary backgrounds and experiential perspectives to our various educational and research activities and collaborative initiatives. We work collaboratively with academic colleagues across and beyond NUS, and with key stakeholders in the healthcare sector and biomedical science and policy communities.
We are delighted that our Founding Director, Professor Alastair V. Campbell, was awarded the Public Service Medal as part of the 2018 National Day Awards. All of us at CBmE are committed to continue on the path of excellent service in bioethics.
