Irene Domenici Selected for New Cambridge Exchange Programme
Junior researcher Irene Domenici will be one of the first Max Planck researchers to take part in the recently established exchange programme between Max Planck Law and the University of Cambridge, Faculty of Law. Irene, a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Social Law and Social Policy, was selected as one of two participants for the programme following a rigorous selection process amongst several excellent candidates.
Irene's research focus is on health law and bioethics. In her dissertation, she deals with ethically controversial health technologies in the public healthcare system. Therefore, she is particularly interested in engaging with the Cambridge Law Faculty’s Centre for Law, Medicine and Life Sciences. Irene is very much looking forward to the scientific exchange which is planned for October 2021: "The programme will allow me to improve my academic work, share my initial research findings, and build valuable personal connections with researchers who share my passion and interest in investigating matters related to the emergence of ethically controversial health technologies in a pluralist society".
Max Planck Law is a network that brings together researchers and resources of ten law-related Max Planck Institutes. All participating Institutes engage in fundamental research at the highest level. Their research projects tend to be highly innovative and are both intra- and interdisciplinary in nature.
