ST. LOUIS -- A Saint Louis University health care ethicist and medical school student will receive the 2010 Rod Rose Award for an article they wrote on instruction in the responsible conduct of research.
|James DuBois, D.Sc., Ph.D.|
James DuBois, D.Sc., Ph.D., the Hubert Mäder professor in the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics at Saint Louis University and Jeffrey Dueker, MPH, a third year medical student at SLU, will be recognized on Oct. 19 for their article that appeared in the fall 2009 issue of the Journal of Research Administration.
The Rod Rose Award will be presented at the Society of Research Administrators International's annual meeting in Chicago.
The Rod Rose Award is presented annually to the authors of an article in the Journal of Research Administration that is judged to be the most outstanding contribution of the year.
Funded by the U.S. Office of Research Integrity (ORI), DuBois and Dueker reported findings from a Delphi survey they conducted with four panels of experts to develop a consensus on the appropriate goals and content for research ethics in areas that are not clear-cut. ORI is using the "Delphi" consensus to guide current projects. DuBois and Holly Bante, a research assistant at the Center, subsequently received funding from ORI to develop a national test bank that builds upon the results of the Delphi survey.
Established in 1979, the Albert Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics at Saint Louis University is committed to excellence in teaching, service and research in health care ethics.
