Personal profile

Research Interests

I have a strong interest in medical ethics, especially ethical issues in pediatrics, end-of-life care, research on human subjects, transplantation, children with differences of sex development (DSD) and gender identify nonconformity (GIN), medical and surgical innovation, transplantation and conscientious objection to requested care by health care professionals. My main clinical interests are in pediatric palliative and hospice care, multidisciplinary care of children with DSD/GIN and parent support for difficult decisions under conditions of uncertainty. More recently I have developed interests in the ethics of expensive, innovative treatment for rare diseases and in ethical obligations of health care-related companies to provide care to those without access to it.
