The medical ethics unit at LIME, Karolinska Institutet is pleased to announce the Karolinska Institutet Medical Ethics Conference, aimed at bringing together researchers in this field in Sweden and abroad.

We welcome contributions presenting ongoing work in medical ethics, broadly conceived. In particular, we welcome normative approaches or empirical work with clear normative relevance to topics in clinical ethics, public health ethics, research ethics, and medical law.

The conference will take place at Karolinska Institutet, Campus Solna on the 7th to 8th of June, 2023.
