Singapore Visit

PEALS Executive Director Professor Jackie Leach Scully was delighted to be able to visit some old friends at the Centre for Biomedical Ethics (CBmE) in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore.

PEALS has longstanding connections with CBmE. The current director, Professor Vikki Entwistle, is a former Visiting Scholar and collaborator, while former Associate Professor Jacqueline Chin worked with several PEALS members in the Network on Ethics of Families and hosted one of the Network’s meetings at CBmE.

While at CBmE Jackie gave an internal seminar on the Nuffield Council on Bioethics’ 2018 report on genome editing in human reproduction, based on her experience as a member of the working group that produced the report. A further goal of the visit was to explore the potential for continuing to develop the existing links between the two centres.
