Judgment call: Bioethics advice goes online

Jonathan Moreno, professor and director of U.Va.'s Center for Biomedical Ethics, writes a medical ethics column, Judgment Call, for ABCNEWS.com. The column, which appears two or three times a month, takes on various biomedical ethics issues.

For the latest on-line chat, questioning whether ethical standards for science research should apply in developing nations, go to http://abcnews.go.com/sections/living/Bioethics/bioethics.html.

Moreno is the Emily Davie and Joseph S. Kornfield Professor of Biomedical Ethics. He joined U.Va.'s faculty in 1998, bringing with him varied experience from his stints at the Hastings Center, Children's National Medical Center, the University of Pennsylvania's Center for Bioethics, and SUNY-Brooklyn's Health Sciences Center as professor and director of the Division of Humanities and Medicine. He has also served on two presidential advisory commissions.
