Candidates

Maria Caluianu
I am a first-year UCL PhD student with experience finding speakers for events and organising social events. My priorities, if I were elected, would be to set up stimulating seminars and talks with experts from UCL and other universities as transmission as well as organising online socials.

I would like to run for this position as it would give me the chance to set up some exciting events for students interested in bioethics. For example, I was envisaging some panel discussions and seminars on the legalities of disease transmission (whether infecting others knowingly or through negligence should be illegal), the ethics of developing COVID-19 vaccine passports, and various women’s health issues.

I also understand the importance of social events during this isolating academic year and would like to implement online socials on platforms including Icebreaker so that society members can get to know each other better. I have experience finding and contacting speakers for events from my undergraduate role as corporate officer in the IMS Society at UCL and have previously organised social events including the Integrated Medical Science ball in February 2020.
Fabia Huda
Hello Everyone! My name is Fabia, and I am a medical student, starting 4th-year in the 2021/2022 academic term. As a student of medicine, I have a passion for understanding the way moral ethics and philosophy shapes our ideology, which is reflected in the continuous evolution of guidelines and policies in parallel to scientific innovation.

I have been involved with the BML Society since it began in 2019, and able to closely observe its operations and appreciate its ethos. It has been a privilege to learn from the inspiring events and stimulating discussions thus far. I would love the opportunity to utilize these lessons towards the continual advancement of UCL BML society as its Welfare and Events Officer in 2021/2022.

If elected, I hope to contribute to this society by organising events that explore the philosophical dimension of bioethics as well as the empirical sciences that rationalise its practice. I also intend to voice the individual interests of BML society members by personally reaching out and maintaining an accessible chain of communication. This will enable the society to organise events that not only reflects ethical dilemmas of current affairs, but also the innovative ideas and passion of the UCL student body.
