L’utilité de ce genre d’institutions est incontestable. Car le monde moderne est sans cesse confronté à des innovations, médicales ou autres, qui s’appliquent à l’homme ou à son environnement proche. Ce lieu est donc nécessaire pour préparer la matière intellectuelle qui sera ensuite transférée aux citoyens afin que ceux- ci puissent se prononcer quant à la légitimité de ces innovations.

Tereza Hendl Tereza Hendl

Dr, Postdoctoral Research Fellow - Sydney Health Ethics

Dr Hendl is a philosopher and bioethicist. Her research interests lie at the intersection of the epistemology, ethics and regulation of emerging technologies. Tereza Hendl is a Postdoctoral Researcher on the project “META – mHealth: Ethical, legal and societal aspects in the technological age.” This project is funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and investigates mobile health
 technologies from an individual, population and global perspective. She is interested in debates about the democratizing potential of mHealth as well as interrogations of these technologies as a mode of reinforcing a particular self, that of the autonomous consumer within neoliberal healthcare systems. Her research currently explores epistemological, ethical and social aspects of fertility tracking mobile applications and the underlying values and social norms they carry. She is particularly concerned with the ways these ontological norms manifest in algorithms and the effects of algorithmic bias on human lives. 


Dr Hendl holds a PhD in Philosophy from Macquarie University, Australia. Her dissertation explored the ethics of sex selection for social reasons. This project used an empirical methodology, interviewing Australian women who have selected or desired to select their child’s chromosomal sex based on gender preference. She has worked as a Research Associate at the University of Sydney on an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Project investigating how young people with impairment resist ableism in their transition to adulthood (2015-2016). She has conducted research as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Sydney Health Ethics on the ARC Linkage Project “Regulating autologous stem cell therapies in Australia” (2016 - 2017). This interdisciplinary project promoted ethical and socially responsible innovation with stem cells. In 2017-2018 she has continued research on the Linkage Project as an Honorary Fellow at the University of Melbourne. She has contributed to public reviews of Australian policy on the use of prenatal genetic technology for sex selection as well as the use of tissue and cellular health products. She has appeared in a wide range of media to participate in public debates about health technologies and ensure that her research contributes to societyFor example, in 2015 she delivered a TEDxMacquarie University talk Challenging Gender Selection to raise awareness about the ethical implications of sex selection for social reasons.
