His research has focused on the issue of how bioethics can be empirically informed and contextually relevant, both in theoretical projects as well as in clinically-oriented projects. The theoretical issues concern ethical particularism, family ethics, autonomy and informed consent, and risk. His more clinically-oriented projects include work on reproductive ethics, participation in Phase 1 and 3 cancer clinical trials, risk information to acute myeloid leukemia patients as well as the role of family members and close ones in health-care decisions.
