Ryan M. Antiel, MD, MSME is focused on improving the lives of children and families confronted with difficult decisions such as surgical decision-making in the face of uncertainty and end-of-life issues. His research combines empirical approaches from the fields of epidemiology, decision-making sciences, and child outcomes with conceptual work grounded in moral philosophy and theology. He applies these approaches to address ethical challenges surrounding the care of seriously ill fetuses and neonates. 

Dr. Antiel is also interested in how surgical residency shapes the character of surgeons-in-training and how best to form the virtues of character necessary for good surgical practice.
