About Us

The Status of the Human Embryo project came about as part of a lecture series on the ethics of assisted reproduction given by Professor Nick Goulding during year 3 of the MB BS medical degree course at Barts & the London School of Medicine & Dentistry, Queen Mary University of London. The project is funded by the Sir Halley Stewart Trust to provide UK medical students with an introduction to ethical, legal and theological perspectives on the moral status of the human embryo which complements their medical studies.
