Research interests

My research deals with the ethical, legal and social implications of biotechnologies and biomedicine; in other words, the philosophical-legal issues between Bioethics and Law, as well as the discussion and analysis of the so-called 'difficult cases' raised by the new biotechnologies and biomedical applications. Currently, my work is oriented to analyze -from the recognized Human Rights approach- the Oviedo Convention and its adaptation to the new social and scientific reality; the ethical, legal and social impacts of the new technologies in research and reproduction, the questions that entail genomic edition, pending topics in the field of the assisted human reproduction, the implications linked to the forensic use of the DNA, the aging, the change of the research model in the neoliberal context, and also, integrity in the research and formation in bioethics
