October 5, 2012 - ethica Clinical Research Inc. is pleased to congratulate Daniel Adler on being awarded the University of Toronto's Bioethics Scholarship for the 2012-13 academic year.
Daniel completed his Honours BA in Bioethics and Peace & Conflict Studies this past June and is currently enrolled at the University of Edinburgh where he is studying to obtain his MSc in philosophy with a specialization in ethics. Daniel’s choice of university and specialization for his post-graduate studies were inspired and made possible by the scholarship.
The $25,000 undergraduate Bioethics Scholarship was established in April 2007 by ethica Clinical Research Inc. in honour of Dr. Barry Brown. Dr. Brown is the current Board Chair of Veritas IRB Inc. (a wholly-owned subsidiary of ethica Clinical Research Inc.), Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto, and the former Chair of the University of Toronto's undergraduate program in Bioethics. The scholarship has been awarded annually to an outstanding undergraduate student studying bioethics.

For the fourth consecutive year, organizers of the event have selected Janice Parente (President of ethica Clinical Research Inc.) to be President of the jury that will select the winners in six categories.
The GENESIS Awards ceremony will take place on Wednesday, June 6, 2012 at the Hotel Le Westin in Montreal, Canada.
