Associate Professor Niklas Juth's 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. In this program, he has recently published on how patients using social media to expose experienced flaws in health care are perceived by health care personnel and the extent that they should be involved in decision-making regarding their health care. He has also initiated a project in collaboration with the Karolinska University Hospital on the extent to which neurosurgical patients' right to self-determination is respected.
