OTHMANI Mohamed Mehdi (already emailed him to ask for bio but did not get reply)



Knowledge is like a vessel that needs to be infused with new insight as bioethical developments arise and cause us to differentiate our challenges for the future from those of the past. Utilizing an interdisciplinary approach, this group challenges and explores not only the fundamental rights and interests of humans and other animals as a continuum of cognitive ability, but addresses how, together, we can shape the future so that innovation and moral principles are in balance. We will be the interdisciplinary group of legal and medical professionals, biologists, bioethicists, philosophers, and economists, who reflect the moral center of the Union Internationale des Avocats.
