9th Annual JCB Research & Awards Celebration

Tuesday, June 22, 2021

In a year of extraordinary challenges, we want to celebrate the accomplishments of our members, students, graduates, faculty, and ethicists for 2020-21! This year’s JCB Research & Awards Celebration will feature a virtually-held awards presentation. Normally we also hold a poster competition, but we will have to wait until next year when we hope to be able to see you all in person.

This year’s faculty recognitions and awards include:

  • Christine Harrison Bioethics Education Award for Integration of Theory and Practice
  • Ross Upshur Thesis Mentorship Award
  • Barbara Secker Award for Professional Innovation in Health Ethics Practice

The student awards this year are:

  • Larry Librach Prize in Ethics and End of Life Care
  • Mervis-Simon Family Award in Bioethics
  • Martin McKneally Capstone Project Award
  • Peter A. Singer Award in Bioethics

We'll be sending a registration link and awards call for submission this Spring. Registration will close on June 18, 2021.

Innovation Showcase Poster Display & Competition (on-hold for 2021)

The Innovation Showcase Poster Display & Competition will feature recent scholarly work by members of the JCB community, including students and trainees, faculty, ethicists, and alumni. There will be two poster competitions: i) student/trainee and ii) open. Awards will be given for the best student/trainee poster and the best open poster. To participate in the Innovation Showcase, please submit the information via the online form. All submissions must be received by 5:00 pm on May 10, 2019.

Poster submissions can be original submissions or posters that were previously presented at conferences during the 2018-19 academic year.

Please note: Posters must be delivered to us by 2:00 pm on Tuesday, May 30th (the day before the event) in order to be included in the display and competition. Posters will be available for pick up either immediately after the showcase or on June 1st.
