Our Research


My studies mainly focus on three domains: (a) securing autonomy and dignity in older people care and End-of-Life care;  (b) genethics – primarily with respect to the intersection of ethics, genetics and reproduction from genetic testing to genetic editing; and (c) teaching of medical ethics and medical humanities.  The studies are based on  empirical ethics approach and  analytical philosophy analysis, yielding more than 20 academic papers and book chapters, many of which appeared in top-notch (A class) academic journals.  Please see publications for further details regarding past published research projects. 

If you’re interested in one of these broad research domains and you’re thinking  about enrollment as a PhD or MSc student, please feel free to contact me via email: miriam.bentwich@biu.ac.il
