What is PhilInBioMed?
PhilInBioMed is both an interdisciplinary institute located at the University of Bordeaux, France, and a national and international network of interdisciplinary institutes. PhilInBioMed aims at promoting philosophy in the biological and medical sciences, a co-production of knowledge by the direct interactions of philosophers, biologists, and medical doctors.
The mission of PhilInBioMed is to promote short-term and long-term stays of philosophers in biology and medicine labs, as well as short-term and long-term stays of biologists and MDs in philosophy labs, and, ultimately, collaborative publications by philosophers, biologists, and medical doctors.
2020 Summer School Philosophy in Biology and Medicine
From May 25th-29th 2020 PhilInBioMed and the ERC IDEM project organize the interdisciplinary summer school Philosophy in Biology and Medicine. 20 young scholars (PhD students and Postdocs) from the fields of philosophy of science, the life sciences, and medicine will come together and learn to use interdisciplinary methods to address conceptual issues in scientific research.
Course leaders will be there to present practical examples of interdisciplinary partnerships from their career, and to advise and interact with participants throughout the week. This is a unique opportunity for young researchers to develop new interdisciplinary approaches that will benefit the participants throughout their career. Read more here.
