Dr Adeline Perrot

Researcher in Ethics


Adeline Perrot is currently working in a team with Ruth Horn, Associate Professor in Ethics, on a research project to explore the ethical issues raised by the implementation of non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) in routine clinical care in different socio-cultural and political contexts (England, France and Germany). As part of the international comparison, she is responsible for the French and English research sites.  

Adeline is a trained sociologist (PhD - School of Advanced Studies in the Social Sciences (EHESS) - Paris) with experience in ethnographic methods (in situ observations, document analysis and interviews). Her approach is at the intersection between sociology, bioethics, law and social policy. She has held research grants from the Foundation de France, the DataSanté programme and the Rare Disease Foundation.

Her research focuses on ethical issues and social implications, particularly in the fields of biotechnologies, genetics/genomics and medical practices. She has an interest in moral and practical dilemmas that emerge in everyday situations, and how they are resolved through negotiation and deliberation between actors with different values, beliefs, aspirations, ideals and rationalities.
