      Marsha Michie is an anthropologist and empirical bioethicist who studies social and ethical issues in genetics, including moral and religious perspectives. Dr. Michie has conducted qualitative research on families of children with genetic disorders, on the understandings and self-perceptions of genetic research participants, and on individual and community religious identities. Her dissertation was a long-term ethnography of an independent Pentecostal church community in North Carolina.

      Dr. Michie's current research examines social and ethical issues in the translation of non-invasive prenatal genetic screening from laboratory innovation to a recommended component of prenatal care, through interviews and mixed-method research with patients, obstetricians, and other stakeholders in this technology.
