We’re very pleased to announce that Katherine Furman has won the prize for best paper in the category “Interdisciplinary Bioethics” at the 2014 Postgraduate Bioethics Conference for her paper “Is Thabo Mbeki morally responsible for his AIDS denialism?”

The Postgraduate Bioethics Conference is an annual conference aimed at doctoral researchers from a variety of disciplines whose research involves bioethical analysis. The 2014 conference was held in Southampton.

Katherine Furman is in the third year of her Philosophy PhD and is currently writing about HIV/AIDS denialism in South African health policy in the early 2000s. Before starting her PhD, Katherine was a student on our MSc in Philosophy and Public Policy.

Congratulations Katherine!
