About Muireann Quigley

I am a Lecturer in Bioethics at the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy and the Institute for Science, Ethics, and Innovation in the School of Law. Prior to taking up the lectureship she worked as a Research Fellow in Bioethics and Law. In a previous life I was a medical doctor where I worked in General Medicine and A&E. I have also worked as a Screening Physician for a phase I clinical trials company.

I qualified from the Manchester/St. Andrews medical course in 2003. I also completed my Intercalated BSc in Health Care Ethics and Law in 2002 with first class honours, and in 2006 finished her M.A. in this area receiving a distinction. I recently completed a PhD which looks at the philosophical underpinnings for claims regarding property in the human body and human biomaterials.
Currently I am vice-chair of the North West e-Health (NWeH) Research Governance Committee. NWeH is a project supported by the North West Development Agency and run by the University of Manchester, Salford Royal Hospitals NHS Trust and Salford Primary Care Trust to build e-Lab software and services to support the NHS, research and public health.
