Mapping Ethical Issues Related to Advance Paternal Age

In most societies parental age at birth is increasing. This phenomenon has been well studied in women, but what about men? An increasing number of studies tend to show an association between the father’s advanced age and negative health outcomes for the child. In this context, this research project aims to shed light on the nature of the responsibility of future fathers of advanced age in relation to their reproductive decisions.

Study the Use of Palliative Care During the Perinatal Period

The disclosing of a prenatal genetic diagnosis with a poor prognosis is a particularly demanding situation for future parents. This project seeks to explore the possibility of providing palliative care at the birth of the child. We are more specifically interested in the social, psychological and ethical dimensions associated with this difficult decision-making for future parents.

Explore the Contribution of Arts to Bioethics

How to share the results of bioethics research to the general public? One of the avenues that we are exploring consists in creating hybrid events that mobilize knowledge transfer in bioethics and aesthetic experimentation.
