Inheritance. The moral economies of reproduction in the biosocial ageLuca Chiapperino is Post-doctoral fellow at the Institute of Social Sciences, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, of the University of Lausanne. In 2015, he obtained his PhD in "Foundations of the Life Sciences and their Ethical Consequences" at the European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM) and the University of Milan. His research interests lie at the intersection of Science and Technology Studies and Bioethics, with a specific focus on the production of value-laden claims and norms in practices of knowledge-making in biomedical research and innovation. Currently, his research deals with the biosocial reconfigurations of intergenerational responsibilities and relationships in epigenetic research.
I graduated in moral philosophy at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”, before doing a PhD in Bioethics and STS at the Università degli Studi di Milano and the European School of Molecular Medicine (SEMM), on the relationship between the science of epigenetics and claims of responsibility, and empowerment in healthcare policy-making. I am currently a post-doc at the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Lausanne, studying the reconfiguration of normative, epistemic and social orders of parenting in/around epigenetics, and the Developmental Origins of Health and Disease (DOHaD) hypothesis.
