Fogarty awards $5M for bioethics research training

May / June 2020 | Volume 19, Number 3

A critical mass of bioethics scholars is needed to address challenging health research issues in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). To help build that capacity, Fogarty has announced four awards through its International Bioethics Training program that will support research ethics training with nearly $5 million over the next five years.

Fogarty is funding doctoral and postdoctoral-level bioethics research training through a grant to Loyola University Chicago, for a collaboration with Ukrainian Catholic University that will train 12 Ukrainian research fellows. Under the same funding scheme, Fogarty also has committed to the South African Research Ethics Training Initiative Leadership Program at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

In addition, Fogarty is supporting two master’s level bioethics research training programs with a new award to George Washington University for training in Mali and continuation of funding for a program at Makerere University in Uganda.

The NIH’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) is helping to fund the awards.
