Monika Piotrowska

Her research is in the philosophy of biology and bioethics, focusing on the conceptual and ethical issues arising from recent advances in genetics and biotechnology. Of special interest are questions regarding biological similarity, e.g., what inferences does biological similarity justify and what are the ethical implications of these inferences? She has looked at biological similarity in the context of comparative genomics, DNA barcoding, genetic engineering, and human-nonhuman chimeras.
