Julian Savulescu

Julian Savulescu is Professor of Practical Ethics at Oxford University and director of the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics. Savulescu studied philosophy and medicine, and gained a PhD at Monash University in Melbourne with eminent bioethicist Peter Singer. Savulescu investigates the ethical aspects of stem cell research and cloning. He holds the view that technology changes our world to such an extent that our old morality cannot keep up. A brilliant scientist, Savulescu is the editor-in-chief of the prestigious Journal of Medical Ethics. With Nick Bostrom (speaker at the Nexus Conference 2010), he edited Human Enhancement (2009) and in 2012 he published, together with Ingmar Persson, Unfit for the Future: The Need for Moral Enhancement.
