Wolpe appointed to new chair

from staff reports

Center for Ethics Director Paul Root Wolpe will serve as the Raymond F. Schinazi Distinguished Research Chair in Jewish Bioethics.

The newly created chair, in the Department of Pediatrics, honors pediatrics professor Schinazi. The chair reflects Schinazi’s longtime support of the Department of Pediatrics and his interest in Jewish studies.

“We are extremely fortunate that Paul Wolpe, a nationally recognized intellectual leader in bioethics, will occupy this critical new position,” says Department of Pediatrics chair Barbara J. Stoll.
