Greenwall Foundation Issues RFP for Making a Difference in Bioethics Program

The Greenwall Foundation has issued an RFP for the fall 2019 funding cycle of Making a Difference in Real-World Bioethics, its bioethics grants program, Through this RFP, the foundation will support research aimed at resolving an important emerging or unanswered bioethics problem in clinical, biomedical, or public health decision-making, policy, or practice.

The foundation welcomes innovative proposals with the potential to have real-world impact but is particularly interested in proposals that address the ethical and policy issues raised by the following priority topics: developments in artificial intelligence; responses to the opioid epidemic; bias and discrimination in clinical care against patients or clinicians based on a broad range of characteristics; advances in biomedical and clinical research and their translation into clinical practice; and healthcare access, costs, and resource allocation. Projects may be empirical, conceptual, or normative.

Mentored projects in which a postdoctoral fellow or junior faculty member works closely with an experienced bioethics scholar will be supported. The foundation also will consider pilot or feasibility projects that evaluate an innovative intervention aimed at resolving a bioethics dilemma with the goal of obtaining funding from other sources for a larger evaluation or demonstration project. Some highly promising projects may be funded for an initial phase, with additional funding contingent on achieving clear milestones.

Letters of Intent are due July 1, 2019. Upon review selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.

Successful teams identified by the foundation commonly involve a bioethics scholar and persons with on-the-ground experience with the dilemma. Such collaborations can specify the bioethics problems that clinicians, researchers, policy makers, public health officials, and others face in their daily work and facilitate practical resolutions to these problems. Applicants also are encouraged to engage with relevant lay or community stakeholders throughout their project.

See the Greenwall Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.

Deadline: July 1, 2019 (Letters of Intent)
