What are Bridging Bioethics Research & Policymaking Grants?

Rapid developments in health care, science, and technology raise exciting possibilities to advance our health and well-being, but also raise complex ethical dilemmas. Strengthening the relationship between bioethics and policy can help decision-makers navigate conflicting points of view and find the best way forward. 

To bridge the gap between bioethics research findings and policymaking, The Greenwall Foundation launched a grant initiative in 2022, Bridging Bioethics Research & Policymaking. Through this initiative, the Foundation funds projects that develop novel mechanisms – or seek to adapt or improve existing mechanisms – that bring bioethics to the table as policy is made. 

This initiative does not fund bioethics research but, rather, supports bioethics researchers, policymakers, and others to take the next step and bridge the divide between research results and policymaking.

Questions about the initiative should be directed to Kyle Ruempler at [email protected].

The Greenwall Foundation is dedicated to the integrity and impartiality of the grantmaking process and wishes to dispel even perceptions of conflicts of interest. Relationships that are conflicts of interest, which require Directors and Committee members to recuse themselves from voting on grant proposals, include an affiliation with a grantee institution, a current mentoring or collaborative relationship with an applicant, or a personal relationship with an applicant.
