Glenn McGee named as John B. Francis Chair in Bioethics

Glenn McGee, PhD, will assume the John B. Francis Chair in Bioethics on January 1, 2010. He follows John D. Lantos, MD. The chair was established in 2005 through a $3 million endowment from the Francis Family Foundation to the Center for Practical Bioethics.

The Francis Chair was designed for an individual with national stature in bioethics, a proven track record in teaching and research and proven leadership qualities in fostering excellence in collaboration. In addition to his research, Dr. McGee will engage in public outreach, and consult with policymakers on medical ethics issues.

“Dr. McGee brings enormous expertise, experience and energy to his new role as the John B. Francis Chair in Bioethics,” says Myra Christopher, president and CEO of the Center. Dr. McGee is known for a pragmatic approach to bioethics, making him a perfect fit for the Center for Practical Bioethics.”
