Stowe Locke Teti is a core faculty member at the Harvard Medical School Center for Bioethics and an ASBH-certified clinical ethicist with specific expertise in pediatric ethics. He oversees the writing support program at the Center for Bioethics, and is executive editor of the HMS Bioethics Journal and of Pediatric Ethicscope: The Journal of Pediatric Bioethics.

Prior to joining the Center's faculty, Stowe completed six years of clinical training in pediatric ethics at Childrens National Health Center in Washington, D.C. He became a clinical ethics associate in 2016, the clinical ethics coordinator in 2017, and the lead clinical ethicist in 2018. While in Washington, Stowe worked on collaborations among pediatric hospital ethics programs to improve clinical ethics case documentation and promotion of data sharing to improve research into pediatric ethics consultation. In 2016 he founded the Washington D.C. Clinical Ethics Consortium, bringing clinicians and faculty together from the ethics departments at Children's National, Washington Hospital Center, the NIH, the Kennedy Institute, the Pellegrino Center, the VA, and nine local hospitals to share experiences, discuss issues in common, and promote collaboration.

Stowes recent research includes quantitative study of decision-making dynamics in pediatric end-of-life care, clinical ethics consultation processes and methodology, ethics consult service utilization, and qualitative study of social obligation. He writes about specific bioethical issues such as iatrogenesis and opioid policy, as well as moral theory, social theory, and theories of human nature. He has taught in the Foundations of Bioethics course and is teaching a Capstone Seminar in Fall 2019.
