New Visitor at CeBIL – Sara Gerke

18 May - 30 June 2019

Sara Gerke is the Research Fellow in Medicine, Artificial Intelligence, and Law, at the Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School. She oversees the day-to-day work of the Project on Precision Medicine, Artificial Intelligence, and the Law (PMAIL), including conducting law, policy, and ethics research; drafting reports and recommendations; and coordinating the Petrie-Flom Center's efforts with collaborators at CeBIL as well as other partners.

Before joining the Petrie-Flom Center, Sara was employed as General Manager of the Institute for German, European and International Medical Law, Public Health Law and Bioethics of the Universities of Heidelberg and Mannheim (IMGB) in Germany. She was also the Co-Investigator of an interdisciplinary project, known as “ClinhiPS”, sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (April 2016 to March 2018). This project analyzed the clinical application of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) in Germany and Austria from a scientific, ethical and comparative legal perspective.

During her research stay at CeBIL, Sara will pursue various PMAIL/CeBIL projects on legal and ethical issues with AI and medicine, including working on comparative approaches, cardiac devices as well as data protection and privacy.
