Accelerating Ethics Research
Wednesday, Jan 15, 2020
Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York
Interested in ethical considerations in biomedical research? Need assistance in finding and federal grants for ethics research and formulating ideas for proposals?
The Division of Ethics is hosting an initial “EthicsAccelerator” event on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 from 3:00-4:00 pm on PH-15, Room 1560A. Please join similarly-interested colleagues to act on the opportunity afforded by NIH’s recently announced FOA to fund ethics research in a variety of areas.
The “EthicsAccelerator” aims to:
- Bring together investigators, scholars and trainees interested in research on ethical questions
- Provide information for formulating ethical aims in study design
- Support an engaged community to accelerate research on ethics at Columbia

Since its founding in 1990, the Ethical, Legal, and Social Implications (ELSI) Program of the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) has supported empirical, analytical and conceptual research to anticipate and address the ethical, legal, and social implications of genomics. Researchers, scholars, community members, and others interested in ELSI research convene for a multi-day, multi-disciplinary meeting, known as the ELSI Congress. The latest in this series of international conferences will take place June 15-17, 2020 at Columbia University in New York.
