The Anscombe Bioethics Centre
The UK’s Linacre Centre for Healthcare Ethics is changing its name, location, and director. In future it will be known as The Anscombe Bioethics Centre, will be based in Oxford, and will be headed by David Jones, Professor of Bioethics at St Mary's University College, Twickenham and author of the fine book The Soul of the Embryo: An Enquiry Into the Status of the Human Embryo in the Christian Tradition. We can be confident that, as it did under previous director Helen Watt, the Centre will continue to produce many important publications, such as the recent Incapacity and Care: Controversies in Healthcare and Research.
