A research opportunity exists in relation to the use of posthumous human assets in education, research, and healthcare. This could involve exploration focused on either body donation or posthumous healthcare information donation, focusing on ethical issues or social license perspectives surrounding the utility of these different elements. The precise topic can be discussed and negotiated with the primary supervisor, Dr Jon Cornwall, who is a leading international expert on ethical issues surrounding posthumous assets and emerging technologies. Enquiries welcome.
