The Centre for Values, Ethics and the Law in Medicine (VELiM) is a research and teaching centre within the School of Public Health, Faculty of Medicine, University of Sydney.
Since our establishment in 1995, we have become one of the largest bioethics centres in Australia and internationally.
Our team includes academics, research fellows and research students working on a wide range of ethical issues. These include public health ethics, clinical ethics, research ethics, animal ethics, the ethics of biotechnology including genetic technology and genomics, and the ethics of drug policy and development.
VELiM also has a long history of conducting empirical social science research, often informed by and informing ethical questions. We have a thriving program of empirical and theoretical research funded by the NHMRC, ARC and other sources.
We teach two postgraduate coursework programs, Qualitative Health Research and Bioethics.
We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in our activities. Please contact our Centre Administrator.
