Laurie Launches Liminal Spaces Project

Lecture Theatre at University of Edinburgh

On the 40th anniversary of the inaugural lecture of Professor JK Mason, delivered in the University of Edinburgh on 28th February 1974, Professor Graeme Laurie, Chair of Medical Jurisprudence, gave a lecture entitled “Confronting the Liminal Spaces of Health Research Regulation”.

The launch of this annual series coincided with the launch of a major new project on this topic, led by Professor Laurie, and funded by the Wellcome Trust.

The project entitled, ‘Confronting the Liminal Spaces of Health Research Regulation’ will began in October 2014, and over the next five years will bring together a team of anthropologists, sociologists, ethicists, and lawyers with a range of stakeholders and regulators to examine the liminal spaces of the regulatory landscape.
