Biographical details

Career summary: Dr Wendy Lipworth is a bioethicist and health social scientist. She completed her medical degree at UNSW in 1999, and moved into academia in 2002. She has since completed a MSc by research (Sydney University) on biobanking ethics; a PhD (Sydney University) on the ethics of journal peer review; and a Postdoctoral Fellowship at UNSW on pharmaceutical policy. She is currently a Senior Research Fellow and NHMRC Career Development Fellow at the Centre for Values, Ethics and the Law in Medicine.

Research support: Dr Lipworth has been supported by NHMRC throughout her academic career. Her PhD was supported by a NHMRC Scholarship; her postdoctoral research was supported by a NHMRC Training Fellowship, and she has just commenced a NHMRC Career Development Fellowship. In addition to these Fellowships (and numerous associated smaller travel grants), she has been a Chief Investigator on two NHMRC Project Grants) totaling over $1million.

Contributions to the field: Dr Lipworth has published over 50 peer reviewed journal articles in ethics, social science, legal and medical journals, and her research has been presented both nationally and internationally. Her work has also been translated into policy and practice through her role as Deputy Chair of the Australian Bone Marrow Donor Registry (ABMDR) Ethics Committee, and her involvement in the NSW Ministry of Health’s Office for Health and Medical Research (OHMR) Working Group on consent for NSW public health biobanks; the latest revision of the Royal Australasian College of Physicians’ conflict of interest guidelines; and two submissions by professional organisations to the Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee. In 2013 she became the inaugural Chair of a Special Interest Group on ethics for the Drug Information Association—a major, global, non-profit organisation with more than 18,000 members worldwide who are involved in the development and regulation of pharmaceuticals. She is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry and Therapeutic Innovation and Regulatory Science.

Supervision and mentoring: Dr Lipworth is primary supervisor for one PhD student and co-supervises four other PhD students. She has also mentored several undergraduate students in their research projects.

Research interests

Dr Lipworth’s research has four streams, focused on:

- The ethics of drug development

- The ethics of evidence-based medicine and health technology assessment

- The ethics of health-related publishing, and

- The ethics of biobanking research.

Methodologically, she is an empirical bioethicist, combining qualitative empirical research with theoretical analysis to inform policy and practice. Theoretically, she is particularly interested in the morality of social institutions: how institutions form and evolve; how they “go wrong”; and how they should be regulated.

Teaching and supervision

Dr Lipworth is Co-Coordinator of the Research Ethics Unit of Study in the Masters of Bioethics (BETH) Program.
