The PaediEthics group of the Institute of Biomedical Ethics and History of Medicine investigates research topics at the interfaces of medical ethics and childhood (including pre- perinatal period and adolescence). It supports and evaluates clinical decision-making by action research and discussions of current knowledge, attitudes and literature.
We conduct both qualitative and quantitative research with empirical and normative methodologies in a wide array of research topics. The PaediEthics group unifies national and international researchers based at or affiliated with the University of Zurich in close collaboration with the University Children's Hospital of Zurich.
PaediEthics research group leader is Dr. Jürg C. Streuli, MD, PhD, Senior Research Fellow at the IBME and Vice-Co-President of the clinical ethics committee at the University Children's Hospital, Zurich.
Currently 2 PhDs, 2 post doc, 1 MD and 3 Masterstudents are involved in the Pediethics group research projects along with collaborators of several international universities.
