Lisa Parker

Lisa S. Parker, PhD, a philosopher-bioethicist and Associate Professor of Human Genetics, participated in a Fogarty International Center NIH Training Program to help develop research capacity in India, where she was also invited to give the 2009 keynote ethics address to the Indian Society of Human Genetics. With her post-doctoral fellow, NN Mishra, PhD, she is launching a project to examine Indian conceptions of privacy and confidentiality. At the request of the Indian Council for Medical Research, Drs. Mishra and Parker drafted guidelines for the conduct of research with cognitively impaired subjects. Drawing on insights from feminist theory, Dr. Parker presented her reflections on the challenges of training someone to be a bioethicist within the highly hierarchical cultural context of an Indian hospital at the annual meeting of the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics, for which she serves as an Executive Board member.
