Professor Muireann Quigley

In conjunction with the Medical law cluster, Dr Muireann Quigley from the Law school at the University of Newcastle will be speaking on 15 February 2017 2:30-4:30pm (JGR) about her research ‘Property, Persons and Implanted Devices: Some Challenges for the Law?’

Professor Muireann Quigley holds the Chair in Law, Innovation, and Society at Newcastle University Law School. She previously worked at the Centre for Ethics in Medicine at the University of Bristol and the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy at the University of Manchester. Her research mainly focuses on the philosophical analysis of law and policy in medicine and the biosciences. There is an explicit interdisciplinary influence on this area which draws on insights gained from law and  philosophy, as well as science and medicine. Specific areas of research have included the law and ethics of reproduction and the reproductive technologies, organ donation and transplantation, property in human biomaterials, and the regulatory and ethical aspects of using nudges in the health context.

Muireann is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Medical Ethics and a member of the UK Donation Ethics Committee. She is currently finishing a monograph on self-ownership, property rights, and human biomaterials”
