Niklas Juth is a associate professor in medical ethics at Karolinska institutet.
Currently teaching on e.g. The ethics of medical research and the philosophy of medical science, Autonomy and justice in medicine, and The ethics of pre- and neonatal medicine at Karolinska institute.
My main research interests are in ethics and bioethics, genethics, and the intersection between political philosophy and medical ethics, e.g. autonomy and justice in health care. Currently involved in the Stockholm Centre for Health Care Ethics (CHE) project “Prioritizing in Health Care: The Reasonableness and Applicability of the Principles of Cost-Efficiency, Need, and Responsibility” as researcher: I am also doing research within the areas of experimental ethics, victims of honor related threats within health care, end-of-life care, screening, genethics and health care complaints.
