As Associate Professor he is affiliated to the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of Utrecht University and the Ethics Institute of Utrecht University (Faculty of Humanities). Additionally he is Head of the Centre for Sustainable Animal Stewardship (CenSAS) and member of the Research Council of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine.

His fields of interest are in ethics of animal use and veterinary ethics, in agricultural and food ethics, and the role of public trust and debate in these domains. As a researcher and project leader, he has been involved in national and European funded research concerning topics such as  

  • Ethics of animal welfare

  • Prevention and control of animal diseases
  • Questions of moral status (of non-human animals)
  • Ethical aspects of the use of technologies for sustainable animal breeding

In his work the link between ethical theory and moral practice plays an important role. For instance, a number of projects were initiated by or in close cooperation with the Dutch government, such as the drafting of a general ethical framework for biotechnology, the organization of a series of public debates on animal biotechnology, and a series of training in ethics for civil servants of the Ministry of Agriculture. Additionally, he performs and supervise projects with a strong interdisciplinary character.

Project:
From animal model to translational strategy. On the ethical, scientific and institutional problems related to innovations in bio-medical animal research
01.09.2015 to 01.09.2019
General project description 

Experimenting on animals is contested in society. In spite of evidence of results in terms of understanding/ treating human diseases, there is debate concerning the moral justification and trustworthiness of animal research, and on the validity of the used experiments. This already has resulted in many innovative activities towards new animal(free) models. The problem is that implementing innovations appears to be difficult and not always leads to improved human health treatments. 


Therefore, we hypothesize that we need a new approach: from improving individual (animal) experiments to building integrated translational strategies. This entails that innovation starts in the complexity of human patients, who have to benefit from the research results.
The research question is ?How can translational strategies contribute to the effectiveness and ethical acceptability of animal research and to responsible innovations in human health?? Based on two case studies, the consortium investigates the hurdles and elaborates on innovative steps in animal research to build robust translational strategies. The project includes

- Systematic literature research to come to evidence-based translational strategies.
- Exploration of the research chain to trace scientific, ethical and societal obstacles.
- Ethical analysis of uncertainty of outcomes of experiments as an obstacle for ethical assessment of animal research.
- Concrete attempts to improve the translational strategy for the case studies.

The project will result in improved practical and moral understanding of innovation problems, formulating best practices for building translational strategies, and advice to research-chain partners how to deal with scientific, ethical and institutional obstacles on the road to responsible health innovation.
