Simone van der Burg is a senior researcher in philosophy and ethics of medical technologies at IQ Healthcare, Radboud hospital, Nijmegen (the Netherlands). She is currently investigating the ethical quality of the recommendation to strengthen informed consent requirements surrounding the recently expanded neonatal screening practice in the Netherlands. This research is done in cooperation with TNO (Leiden) and the Ethics Institute (Utrecht). Until recently, she was an embedded ethicist in scientific engineering research conducive to photoacoustic mammography, a new technology for the detection of breast cancer, and the acousto-optic monitoring device for the non-invasive monitoring of oxygen and glucose in blood. This research was done at the University of Twente. She is interested in ethical Technology Assessment (its method and practice), public health ethics (esp. ethics of screening), ethics of science policy (esp. research funding), moral imagination, ontology of emerging technology. Van der Burg received a PhD in 2007 at the faculty of Philosophy at the Free University in Amsterdam.
