Rich Gorman

Rich completed his PhD in human geography at Cardiff University in 2017, investigating the social and ethical implications of incorporating animals within various caring and health-promoting practices. Rich worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Exeter on the Wellcome Trust Animal Research Nexus project from 2017-2020, exploring practices of patient involvement around animal research, particularly working with patients and carers to explore their lived experiences of health and illness, and what it means to be ‘involved’ in research that they may find ethically challenging. Rich is now researching ethical preparedness in genomic medicine at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School.
