Frederic Gilbert

ARC DECRA Fellow, University of Tasmania

I have a fixed-term full-time appointment as ARC DECRA Fellow.

I work in bioethics, in particular neuroethics. My current research interests concentrate on the ethical issues posed by novel invasive biomedical technologies, especially in the brain. Part of my projects examined the experimental use of new highly invasive biomedical materials involving irreversible and irrevocable intervention (i.e. synthetic biosystem, additive-bio-fabricated materials, 3D bioprinting, induced pluripotent stem cells, optogenetics, etc.), as well, the use of implantable brain devices for treatment of neurological and psychiatric conditions.

I am affiliated with the Ethics, Policy & Public Engagement program (EPPE) of the ARC Australian Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES), located at the Faculty of Arts, University of Tasmania, Australia.
