The Arts and Ethics Research Group (AERG) seeks to encourage both new insights and public debate around ethical, legal, and social aspects of the practice and governance of medical research and healthcare. In doing so, it draws on diverse approaches and methodologies from the arts and humanities in conversation with scientific and medical practitioners.

The AERG strives to be a close-working, active, and enduring partnership of those interested in the possibilities for the arts in humanities research, medical education, and science communication. Its ambitions are to generate scholarly knowledge, artistic creations, and broader social debate.
