Research theme

The development of life science and medical care have raised various kinds of social issues and moral dilemma. Issues relating to advanced medical technologies, end-of-life care, biomedical researches, and so on are value-laden, which require examination from both theorical and practical aspects. In the department of bioethics, we study these ethical issues from a multi-disciplinary perspective including medicine, philosophy/applied ethics, pharmacy, nursing and social science. In addition, through postgraduate research, we train medical personnels with the ability to tackle moral problems in their professional practices. Furthermore, through collaborative research both domestically and internationally, we aim to examine and purpose solutions to the unique issues in Japan.
