My research focuses on the implications of new areas of treatment and technology in biomedicine, such as genetic counselling and testing, experimental treatment involving stem cells and telemedicine. I have conducted empirical studies of what new medical services and technologies mean to persons who are affected by hereditary and chronic diseases and their families. I have also looked at the participation of researchers, patient groups, professionals and at the development of health practices in these areas. A theoretical focal points is conceptions of the person and of personality (see Huniche, L. (forthcoming). Existential Concerns in Families with Huntington’s Disease: Towards an Understanding of the Person in Social Practice. Theory and Psychology). I am a Co-Editor of the international, social science journal of: Critical Social Studies. Outlines.
