Dr. Davis has a range of scholarly interests that is broad and deep. She has long worked in bioethics, as well as in issues of church & state and religion & law. In bioethics, she focuses primarily on genetic research, Alzheimer’s Disease, reproductive technology and genetics, and decision making at the end of life. Many of her published articles have become bioethics teaching standards. Most recently, she has collaborated with a social scientist to examine public opinion about health care decisionmaking for people with dementia.
