The Centre for Health, Law and Emerging Technologies (HeLEX) was established in October 2009, and has been part of the Faculty of Law since August 2019. Our research seeks to identify appropriate legal and governance frameworks for emerging technologies that have the potential to transform, or disrupt, healthcare and medicine. HeLEX uses an interdisciplinary approach, incorporating methods of investigation and analysis from legal scholarship and the social sciences, with a commitment to public and patient engagement and outreach. Our aim is to support societally responsible innovation that engages with and responds to the needs and concerns of multiple stakeholders, meets its legal obligations, and gives due consideration to the public interest and the needs of future generations.
