Making a Difference in Real-World Bioethics Dilemmas
The Greenwall Foundation is requesting proposals for the Fall 2023 cycle of its bioethics grants program, Making a Difference in Real-World Bioethics Dilemmas. The Making a Difference program supports research to help resolve an important emerging or unanswered bioethics problem in clinical, biomedical, or public health decision-making, policy, or practice.
The Foundation’s vision is to make bioethics integral to decisions in health care, policy, and research. Our mission is to expand bioethics knowledge to improve clinical, biomedical, and public health decision-making, policy, and practice. Projects funded under the Making a Difference program should promote the Foundation’s vision and mission through innovative bioethics research that will have a real-world, practical impact.
Deadline for Letters of Intent: Jan. 3, 2023; June 26, 2023
Areas of Interest
While we welcome all innovative proposals that will have a real-world impact, we are particularly interested in proposals that address the ethical and policy issues raised by the following priority topics:
- The COVID-19 pandemic and other public health crises;
- Bias and discrimination against patients or clinicians, which may be based on a broad range of characteristics and which may involve health disparities or social determinants of health;
- Developments in artificial intelligence;
- Responses to the opioid epidemic;
- Advances in biomedical and clinical research and their translation into clinical practice; and
- Healthcare access, costs, and resource allocation.
The research team needs to have relevant and appropriate expertise to carry out the proposed project. Successful teams commonly involve a bioethics scholar and persons with on-the-ground experience with the bioethics dilemma, for example, in clinical care; biomedical research; biotechnology, pharmaceutical, big data, and artificial intelligence companies; or public service. Such collaboration can specify the bioethics problems that clinicians, researchers, policymakers, public health officials, and others face in their daily work, and facilitate practical resolutions to these problems. Applicants are also encouraged to engage with relevant lay or community stakeholders throughout their project.
