Current research at the intersection of biomedicine and society focuses on bioethical issues in genetics/genomics, reproduction and regenerative medicine. Both research and educational activities in this regard rely on interdisciplinary, collaborative and cross-cultural approaches. Previous work dealt with elucidating roles of tetrahydrobiopterin and nitric oxide in immune function and cell differentiation, as well as with the evolution of some of the genes involved.
