Having received his PhD in philosophy from Harvard, Thomas Pogge has published widely on Kant and in moral and political philosophy, including various books on Rawls and global justice. Besides his appointment at CAPPE, he is Leitner Professor of Philosophy and International Affairs at Yale University, Research Director at the Oslo University Centre for the Study of Mind in Nature (CSMN), and Adjunct Professor of Political Philosophy at the Centre for Professional Ethics of the University of Central Lancashire. With support from the Australian Research Council, the UK-based BUPA Foundation and the European Commission (7th Framework) he currently heads a team effort towards developing a complement to the pharmaceutical patent regime that would improve access to advanced medicines for the poor worldwide (www.healthimpactfund.org) and toward developing better indices of poverty and gender equity.
