"My research analyzes the influence of religious objections to brain death on the medical field. This will be a case study of the current Israeli policies that deal with brain-death and organ transplantation. My methodology for my research is made up of interviews and surveys with medical staff, bioethicists, and government officials. All the research is being advised by Dr. Paul Fisher chief of pediatric neurology at Stanford Hospital." -Mica Esquenazi, 2012
