He was appointed as research director of the Centre for Ethics (Radboud University Nijmegen, 1992-2000) and in 2000 became full Professor / Chair of the Department of Philosophy at the Faculty of Science.

He presented >150 international lectures, most of them invited, was visiting scholar at the Hastings Centre (NY) and visiting professor at St. John’s (Canada), Nagasaki (Japan), Seoul (Korea) and Ghent (Belgium). 23 Ph.D. research projects supervised by him have resulted in a thesis. In 2004 he became director of the Centre for Society and Genomics (CSG) funded by the Netherlands Genomics Initiative (NGI) and established at his department. He is editor-in-chief of the Library for Ethics and Applied Philosophy (SPRINGR, LOET) and of the journal Life Sciences, Society and Policy (Springer). The focus of his research is on philosophical and ethical issues in the emerging life sciences with a focus on genomics and post-genomics fields such synthetic biology, nanomedicine and brain research, but he is also interested in research integrity and academic authorship. Special attention is given to the use of genres of the imagination (novels, plays, poetry) in research and education.
