University of Windsor faculty member Pierre Boulos has been appointed to the Panel on Research Ethics for the Canadian Institutes of Health Research ; the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada; and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.

The agencies – also known as the Tri-Council – created the Panel on Research Ethics in 2001 to set out basic standards and processes for research ethics policies and practices of institutions receiving Agency funding.

Dr. Boulos has served as Chair of the University of Windsor’s Research Ethics Board and is Secretary of the International History, Philosophy, and Science Teaching group. He is currently working on articles on teaching for critical thinking, teaching and research ethics, and developing ethical standards in teaching from case studies.

“Being invited to sit on the Tri-Agency Panel is a tremendous honour,” says Alan Scoboria, current Chair of UWindsor’s Research Ethics Board.

“The complexity of research endeavors is increasing rapidly… This appointment recognizes Dr. Boulos’ long-standing local and national leadership to the development of a living research ethics. His capacity for keen ethical analysis and his amicable tenacity will serve us all well.”
