MAtthias katzer

Research Associate, Institute for Ethics, History and Philosophy of Medicine, Hannover Medical School

April - May 2024

Matthias Katzer is a research associate at the Institute for Ethics, History and Philosophy of Medicine at Hannover Medical School (MHH), Germany. He received his doctorate in philosophy from Goethe Universität Frankfurt in 2012.

He is currently involved in a research project on the ethics of human challenge studies (clinical trials in which volunteers are deliberately infected with a pathogen) in collaboration with the Centre for Clinical Trials at MHH. His previous work focused on the philosophy of human rights, in particular on the justification for the inclusion of liberal and democratic norms in human rights.

In a forthcoming project, he will investigate how professional attitudes are transmitted to medical students during their education and whether such attitudes can be taught in medical ethics courses.
