Welcome to Bioethics Ireland, a website run by Dónal O’Mathúna. I’m continually developing the website, so check back for new pages and regular additions. I’d welcome your suggestions in the Comments page on ways you think I can improve the site.

I’m interested in Bioethics and Alternative Medicine, especially the way people make decisions about these issues. I am Senior Lecturer in Ethics, Decision-Making & Evidence at Dublin City University in Ireland. Here, I have collected some of the articles I’ve written on these issues and links to other articles. For a full list of my publications, click here. I welcome your feedback, thoughts and questions through the blogging tool here.

NOW AVAILABLE: a book on ethical issues with nanotechnology. Antibacterial clothes, invisible surveillance devices, new drug delivery devices, nanobots, and everything else. Click on the book cover to link to more information from the publisher, Continuum. Or, check Amazon.co.uk or Amazon.com.
