Leen Trommelmans, “The Challenge of Regenerative Medicine,” Hastings Center Report 40, no. 6 (2010): 24–26.
Leen Trommelmans currently teaches ethics and philosophy to nursing, midwifery, and facility management students at KaHO Sint-Lieven in Belgium. She also does research at the Centre for Biomedical Ethics and Law at K.U. Leuven. She is involved in translating fundamental ethics research into nursing education, investigating how the gap between academia and bedside nursing can be bridged. She is equally involved in building bridges between the regenerative medicine community and the ethics community. Both activities derive from the discovery of a growing need to integrate high-tech scientific innovations, ethics, and the practice of nursing and medicine in order to provide better care for vulnerable patients with the increasing globalization of medicine in mind.
