About Me

Dr. Nada Gligorov received her PhD in Philosophy from the Graduate Center of The City University of New York. She is a faculty member in the Bioethics Program of the ISMMS Medical Education department. One of the themes of Dr. Gligorov’s work is the examination of the interaction between commonsense views and scientific theories. She has published articles on personal identity as it relates to biomedical issues such as advance directives and the human microbiome. She has also published on a number of topics in neuroethics, including the compatibility of determinism and free will, the ethical permissibility of cognitive enhancement, and the implications of brain imaging technologies on mental privacy, and most recently on brain death. She is one of three editors of the book The Human Microbiome: Ethical, Legal and Social Concerns (Oxford University Press, 2013). She is also the author of a monograph titled Neuroethics and the Scientific Revision of Common Sense (Studies in Brain and Mind, Springer, forthcoming in 2016).
