Henning explores the value of drawing on religious ethical traditions, in this case Judaism, as a source for challenging the limits of contemporary research ethics discourses. Her thesis offers an analysis of the scandal in 1963 at the Jewish Chronic Disease Hospital in Brooklyn when Dr Southam injected live, cultured cancer cells into 22 elderly patients to monitor their immune responses. She also explores the discourse of duty as a counter to the language of rights and liabilities.
