The ICC is an affiliate of the new Centre for Health, Arts and Sciences based at the University of Liverpool.
The research centre is led by Professor Gillian Howie, who is the Head of Philosophy at the University of Liverpool and the Principal Investigator on the AHRC funded New Thinking on ‘Living with Dying’ Network project.
Gill is supported by Professor David Pilgrim, a Professor of Health and Social Policy at the University of Liverpool. David’s research interests include: Mental Health Policy; Medical Sociology; Trust in Organisations; Organisational Development; History and Philosophy of Psychology; and Public Mental Health.
Dr Ciara Kierans is a Medical Anthropologist currently working in the Department of Public Health and Policy at the University of Liverpool also supports the network. Her research interests focus principally on new medical technologies, in particular organ transplantation and its bio-political consequences. She has conducted ethnographic research on this topic in Ireland, the UK and most recently Mexico. She has further research interests in social justice and the role of the state in health care and contemporary critiques of the ‘new’ public health.
