The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics provides funding for physicians, lawyers, philosophers, economists, theologians and other professionals to address micro and macro issues in bioethics, providing guidance for those engaged in decision making at the bedside as well as those responsible for shaping institutional and public a career development award to enable outstanding junior faculty members to carry out original research that will help resolve important policy and clinical dilemmas at the intersection of ethics and the life sciences. This research will also put faculty scholars in a position to help set public policy and standards of clinical practice.

Applicants must be junior faculty members holding at least a 60% appointment.  Priority will be given to applicants who are below the rank of Associate Professor, who have not received a comparable career development award, and whose work will have an impact on public policy or clinical practice. Within this group, priority will be given to applicants whose research addresses innovative and emerging topics. Lower priority will be given to applicants who are working on institutional change, educational reform, or primarily theoretical research. Applicants who propose to carry out a conceptual or theoretical analysis should specify how such work will lead to changes in public policy or clinical practice.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, November 4, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) a description of the proposed research, particularly its significance, how it will be carried out, and how it is likely to have an impact on public policy or clinical practice; and 2) a personal statement describing the applicant’s goals in the field of bioethics.
