I am Esti.
I am a lecturer in the Zefat Academic College, there I teach in the department of medical laboratory sciences. In addition, I train students for biology teaching certificate.
I taught biology in high school for twenty years. I hold an M.Sc. in Neurobiology, Hadassah Medical School of the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. During my studies of biology, and especially throughout my research in neurobiology, I was exposed to the importance of bioethics. My research included animal experiments, mainly with rabbits, in addition to Multiple Sclerosis patients.
Later on, I conducted research at the Hebrew university, on bioethical education in health professions schools. Thereby I got the insight that in order to create a deep bioethical education, we have to understand the broad cultural basis for bioethical thinking.
My Ph.D. research dealt with bioethics in the media, and examined the scientific and ethical tools used by the public, addressing realistic controversial issues at the intersection between science and ethics.
