L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Postdoctoral Research Fellow - University of Oxford
United Kingdom

Carmen McLeod is a social anthropologist and interdisciplinary researcher with a particular interest in exploring multi-species relations. Carmen joined the School of Geography and Environment at the University of Oxford in June 2017, when she took up a research post to work with Jamie Lorimer on the social dimensions of the human microbiome. Prior to coming to Oxford, Carmen was based at the University of Nottingham, where she held two postdoctoral research posts. The most recent post (June 2015 - June 2017), involved ethnographic research on Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI), within the Nottingham Synthetic Biology Research Centre. Before this (Feb 2013 - June 2015), Carmen contributed to the Leverhulme Trust Programme: 'Making Science Public: Challenges and Opportunities', working on the project: 'Animals and the Making of Scientific Knowledge'. Prior to moving to Nottingham, Carmen built up experience in policy and research governance through roles at the University of Sussex and General Dental Council. Carmen began her academic career in New Zealand at the University of Otago, in the Centre for Sustainability (CSAFE), where she carried out research on social dimensions of wetland management on farms, and public perceptions of the development of GM salmon and other novel biotechnologies. Her doctoral studies were also carried out at Otago, where she explored the environmental, ethical and cultural dimensions of duck hunting.
