Research on Human Relations in Bioethics

Research overview

The problem of human relations in bioethics appears when in the course of personal interaction (e.g., physician – patient or scientist – research subject) the individual is treated as a means, rather than the final aim of a certain process. The cluster is a multi – discipline unit, encouraging cooperation between the scientists in the major scientific fields (biomedicine, social and human sciences), who work at different University departments, as well as in various Lithuanian universities. The cluster had united the scientists for common goal much earlier when it was registered officially at Vytautas Magnus University.

Scientific research is carried out in four major fields:

  • sexuality and procreation ethics;
  • artificial fertilization ethics;
  • human life security at prenatal stage ethics;
  • life final stage ethics.
