Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies (MeST)

The Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies (MeST) brings together a diverse group of researchers in bioethics, medical anthropology, philosophy, and STS who share an interest in healthcare technologies, practices and institutions. We are also involved in fostering these perspectives in many degree programs within the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences at the University of Copenhagen.

 

 

 

The Centre for Medical Science and Technology Studies (MeST) was established in 2010 by Lene Koch as a collaboration between scholars in the Section of Health Services Research and Medical Museion, Department of Public Health, University of Copenhagen. Previous directors also include Mette Nordahl Svendsen and Henriette Langstrup. MeST is currently headed by Ezio Di Nucci together with Co-Director Anja Jensen

MeST is affiliated with:

MeST contributes to national network initiatives:

Being the largest assemblage of scholars in the field of medical science and technology studies in this part of the world, the Centre aims to play an active role in the international STS research community and thereby attract scholars of international standing in the field for short or long-term research stays at the Centre.

Special efforts are made to coordinate visits by prominent scholars to fit the teaching aims of the Faculty, especially on the postgraduate level.
