Jonathan D. Moreno, PhD was recently appointed by Director-General Irina Bokova to the UNESCO International Bioethics Committee (IBC), a group of 36 leading scholars that follows progress in the life sciences and its applications in order to ensure respect for human dignity and freedom.
The overall goal of the Dartmouth/Penn Research Ethics Training and Program Development for Tanzania (DPRET) is to establish new and strengthen existing expertise in research bioethics among research scientists, faculty, health care providers and other professionals at the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) and throughout Tanzania. This goal will be achieved through graduate level degree training for Tanzanian scholars at the University of Pennsylvania (Penn), intensive practicum experiences at Dartmouth and MUHAS, and the establishment of a graduate training program in bioethics in Tanzania. This project is funded by a grant from the Fogarty International Center at the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH).
