Lesley Sharp awarded the RAI Wellcome Medal

The Department congratulates Professor Lesley Sharp for receiving the Royal Anthropological Institute Wellcome Medal for Anthropology as Applied to Medical Problems. The award recognizes Professor Sharp's longstanding contributions to anthropological studies of bioethics, and in particular, commends her recent publication, Animal Ethos: The Morality of Human-Animal Encounters in Experimental Lab Science (2019). The RAI noted that the publication "broadened the scope of bioethics...by developing new understandings of the morality of care in animal experimentation and interspecies relationships."
