Brief Vitae

Roberto Dell’Oro is the Director of the Bioethics Institute and a Professor in the Department of Theological Studies at Loyola Marymount University.  He studied philosophy and theology at the Facolta’ Teologica dell’Italia Settentrionale and the Catholic University of Milan (Italy), the Hochschule für Philosophie in Munich (Germany), and the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.  In 1992, he earned a doctorate in theological ethics, under the direction of Klaus Demmer, with a dissertation on Dietrich von Hildebrand’s phenomenology of moral experience. From 1993 to 1995, he was a post-doctoral fellow in bioethics at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics, Georgetown University -- with the late Edmund Pellegrino, the former chair of the President’s Council of Bioethics, as a mentor.  In 1995, he became a Senior Scholar at the Center for Clinical Bioethics at Georgetown University, with teaching appointments in the Medical School and the Department of Philosophy.  In the fall 2003, Roberto moved to the Department of Theological Studies at LMU, where he is a full professor and the Director of the Bioethics Institute. 

Over the years, Roberto has held clinical and research appointments in bioethics: from 2003 to 2006, he served as a clinical bioethicist at St. Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, CA, concentrating especially on ethical issues in obstetrics, perinatology and neonatology; from 2001 to 2007, he was the medical ethicist for the “Data and Safety Monitoring Board” at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development at N.I.H. in Bethesda, Maryland; from 2007 to 2011, he chaired the bioethics committee at St. John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica, CA.  In 2010, he was selected for a sabbatical as Erasmus Mundus Professor of Bioethics at the University of Padua (Italy).  Since 2003, he has been an Affiliate Scholar at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.   

Roberto teaches in the areas of bioethics, fundamental moral theology, and ethical theories, with a special interest in anthropological themes at the crossroad of theology and philosophy.  Roberto has lectured internationally in five languages.  He is the author/co-author of three books, Health and Human Flourishing: Religion, Moral Anthropology, and Medicine (Washington: Georgetown University Press, 2006), Esperienza morale e persona (Rome: Gregorian University Press, 1996) and History of Bioethics: International Perspectives (San Francisco: International Scholars Publications, 1996), translated two books from German, and published in national and international journals, such as Theological Studies; Health Progress; Medicine, Health Care and Philosophy; The Journal of Contemporary Health Law and Policy; INTAMS review; Rivista di teologia morale; Vida y Etica.  He is currently working on a book tentatively titled Method and Meaning: Hermeneutical Reflections in Bioethics.
