Silvia Camporesi

I am a bioethicist and Lecturer in Bioethics & Society at King’s College London. I am interested in the intersections of genetics, ethics and society, with a special interest in sport.

Originally trained as a biotechnologist in Italy, I left the bench in 2007 to pursue a PhD in Ethics & Life Sciences, a joint program of the European School of Molecular Medicine and the University of Milano.

In the fall of 2009 I spent a period as a visiting PhD student at the National Cancer Institute at NIH. At that time I was sponsored by an ICRETT Transfer of Knowledge fellowship awarded by the Union for International Cancer Control, to research the ethical and regulatory issues of Phase 0 cancer trials.

In 2010 I moved to London to pursue a second PhD in Philosophy of Medicine. I have been living working in London since (with a brief parenthesis for a research period at University of California San Francisco in 2011-2012).

My first book, “From Bench to bedside to track & Field: the context of enhancement and its ethical relevance”, has been published for University of California Medical Humanities Press in 2014.

I am now working on a second book project with Mike McNamee, titled “Bioethics, Genetics & Sport” which will be published by Routledge in the Ethics & Sport Series in late 2016.

In October 2013 I took up the position of Lecturer in Bioethics & Society in Department of Social Science, Health & Medicine at King’s College London, where I direct the new Master’s in Bioethics & Society (launched September 2014).
