  1. I am Biology Teacher in Secondary Education and currently following a Master’s on Bioethics Course in the University of Crete, at Rethymno.

    My primary concerns and interests lie in the filed of education and on that area I would like to do my master’s thesis.

    Looking for data concerning other countries’ approach in teaching bioethics, I came up to your webpage, which I found very helpful and would like to thank you about it.

    I wish you good luck with all your projects and express you my congratulations and many thanks for your work.

    Tania

  2. I’m glad you find the resources useful, good luck with the Masters
