  • Rosana Triviño Caballero‘s research is mainly devoted to bioethics, with a focus on healthcare professionals’ conflicts of conscience, women’s sexual and reproductive rights, and vulnerable people’s right to healthcare. Her professional trajectory is the result of the intersection of two paths. The first one is related to her experience for 10 years (1998-2008) as a physiotherapist at a public healthcare center. During this period, she participated in healthcare research and formative activities addressing patients’ physical and social problems, and public health interventions. That clinical experience roused her increasing interest in the theoretical aspects of bioethical issues. Once she got her degree in Humanities (2007), she specialized in Ethics within a doctorate program on Moral and Political Philosophy at the UNED, under the supervision of Amelia Valcárcel (2008). In 2009, she studied the Diploma en Estudios Políticos y Constitucionales at the Centro de Estudios Políticos y Constitucionales, obtaining the Award for the best research work, on healthcare, autonomy and Jehovah’s Witnesses. This background accounts for her capacity to combine and integrate healthcare, philosophical, and legal approaches in her works. Between 2009 and 2013, did a PhD on healthcare conscientious objection at the Instituto de Filosofía (CSIC) with a JAE-Predoc funding from the CSIC, under the supervision of Txetxu Ausín (IFS, CSIC) and Teresa López de la Vieja (USAL). She has been visiting scholar with external support in some of the best bioethics institutions in the world: the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics (U. Oxford), the Case Western Reserve University Department of Bioethics (Cleveland), the History of Medicine Department at Princeton University, and the Hastings Center in Garrison (NY). Her international network includes researchers from the Uehiro Centre (Alberto Giubilini, Francesca Minerva, Carissa Véliz, and Julian Savulescu); CWRU (Stuart Youngner, Mark Aulisio); Hastings Center (Nancy Berlinger); University of Salzburg (Günter Graf and Gottfried Schweiger). She has published 7 papers in peer-review journals; 10 book chapters; 1 monography and 3 books as coeditor. She is -or has been- part of 8 competitive research projects. In 2016, she got a research grant from the Víctor Grífols Foundation to develop her first research project as Principal Investigator, on abortion access conditions in the UE, with an international scope. She has taught undergraduate and master courses at the U. Coruña, IE University (Madrid-Segovia), and U. León. She has also participated as invited professor in courses at the UCM, U. Murcia, U. Valencia, U. Granada and CIAPE (Chile). This teaching activity has allowed her to gain expertise in the ethical problems related to biotechnology and to institutional and corporative contexts. As result of her work, she has obtained the ANECA accreditation as Profesora Ayudante Doctora, Contratada Doctora and Profesora de Universidad Privada. She currently is assistant professor of Medical Ethics at Universidad de Alcalá and president of LI²FE, Laboratorio de Intervención Filosófica y Ética: a recently created European Economic Interest Group [Agrupación Europea de Interés Económico] with capacity to conduct  analyses and assessment tasks from a humanistic and social approach, and to coordinate research projects (
