Pfizer: Bioethics Sponsor and Felon

Pfizer may be a three-time felon, and yes, it may have recently paid the largest criminal fine in American history.  But that doesn't mean that ethicists should be ashamed to take Pfizer money.  That's why we're all waiting to see who will be awarded the new $100,000 Pfizer Fellowships in Bioethics.  Pfizer encourages its Bioethics Fellows to explore the ethical issues that arise in the everyday practice of medicine, such as conflict of interest.  (This is not a joke.)  The winners will be announced on April 15.
