One of our HEAL UoS colleagues, Dr Remi Nwabueze, spoke last Friday, 9 September, at the inaugural symposium on ‘Legal principles underlying the law on storage of human tissue’, a two-year Oxford-Melbourne Research Partnership set up to explore how the storage and use of human body parts and tissue should be regulated. Remi’s paper was entitled: ‘Philosophical perspectives on the concept of property and its applicability to human tissue’, and builds on some of his earlier work in this field, including his monograph on Biotechnology and the Challenge of Property.
