Personal profile


I work in the field of practical bioethics. My program of research is characterised by identifying practical problems, undertaking conceptual analysis of the underlying philosophical and ethical issues, and developing responses that advance knowledge and contribute to practice. This approach draws upon both my medical and philosophical training. My conceptual analysis and selection of issues is informed by my longstanding commitment to feminist bioethics. 

In 2019 I received the NHMRC Ethics Award, was identified as the national research leader in the field of Bioethics by the Australian, and my research calling for retraction of unethical Chinese transplant research led to my inclusion in Nature's 10 list of people who mattered in science in 2019, and Medscape's 2019 Physicians of the year.
