About Kristien Hens

As a bioethicist I am interested in questions specifically related to genetics, reproductive medicine, feminism, disability studies and neurodiversity (autism, ADHD). My current project is funded by a BELSPO Back-to-Belgium grant: I investigate parental and societal responsibility in the context of autism (genetics and diagnosis). 

I am a member of the Belgian Young Academy

I am a member, initiator and webmaster of Autism Ethics Network
