Ethics Fellowship Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University offers a one year paid full time Ethics Fellowship to recent college graduates who wish to be immersed in ethics research in an active cancer center before beginning training for a healthcare profession. Winship has fostered an active and vibrant research ethics program with the mission of supporting ethical research in the Cancer Center and including ethics companion studies in major grant submissions. This approach achieves multiple goals: (1) clinical trials are designed with ethics specifically in mind, (2) human subjects are respected, and (3) pressing research ethics questions are answered. Rebecca Pentz, PhD, Professor of Research Ethics, is an integral member of the cancer research team. The Ethics Fellow will participate in conducting and analyzing Dr, Pentz’ varied research portfolio, which will involve interacting with patients, patients’ families, physicians, basic scientists and clinical researchers. Dr. Pentz expects the Fellow to be an integral part of the team, contributing to every aspect of the projects the Ethics Team is involved in, including design of new projects. The Ethics Fellow will be expected to design and complete one empirical ethics project during his/her tenure. Dr. Pentz will mentor the Fellow in basic research ethics and the Fellow will attend the Oncology Fellows Fundamentals of Clinical Research, co-taught by Dr. Pentz. The Fellow will have access to the enriching programs of The Emory Ethics Center.
Current Fellow is Taylor White '13. Past Fellows Kris Hendershot '12. Louisa Wall '11 , and Luke Farmer '10
