Yael Hashiloni-Dolev, PhD
Main research interests
My studies revolve around new reproductive technologies, genetics, gender, bioethics and contemporary forms of parenthood. I have studied: Repro-genetics in Germany and Israel, Sex selection, The moral status of the embryo and Egg freezing. In recent years I have shifted my focus to the end of life, studying the subject of Posthumous Reproduction.
I am a member of the Israeli National Bioethics Committee since 2013.
