Jane Reichel

Professor of Administrative Law

Jane Reichel is a professor in Administrative Law at the Faculty of Law at Uppsala University and is since 2011 tied part-time to CRB. She is currently vice dean and chairman of the research committee at the Faculty of Law.

Jane Reichel’s research focuses on the ongoing processes of globalization and Europeanization and its effect on administrative law, the legal discipline dealing with public authorities and their role in the society as well as their relations with individuals. Administrative matters can no longer be addressed solely within one nation state at the time. In her research Jane addresses how this development affects the role of authorities and how administrative rules are to be applied in an international context. How can administrative ideals of efficiency, transparency and legal certainty in decision-making be achieved? How can command and control over administration function in a network of agencies acting beyond the state? An area of specific interest is cross-border data protection, especially medical research and biobanks. The ability of new technology to collect, store and share large amounts of information gives rise to opportunities and challenges, which necessitates administrative solutions that apply across borders.

Biobank and registry ethics & law

For many years, researchers at CRB have provided constructive advise on how to deal with ethical and legal aspects of research using human tissue material and personal data. We have collaborated with biomedical scientists and published our findings in peer reviewed journals. As a summary of this research we have compiled a list of publications with abstracts. We have grouped them thematically to help you find the ones you might be interested in reading. Our publications deal with ethical frameworks and policy, regulatory aspects of biobank and registry research, informed consent, ethical review, integrity concerns, trust, genetic testing, indicental findings, commercialization, public and patient perceptions, rare diseases, children & biobanks & genetics, and biobank studies.
