Junior Professorship for Medical Ethics

The junior professorial chair for medical ethics focusing on digitalisation (Tenure Track) is dedicated to researching the ethical aspects of health sciences and medicine against the background of the growing use of digital technologies, big data and automation.

Digitalisation is causing a continuous transformation of healthcare and having extensive influence on research, medical practice and care. It brings diverse potential but also new challenges. The professorship is set up to investigate ethical questions connected with these developments; it also considers ethical aspects of gene technology.
