Lifetime Achievement Award for Excellence in Research Ethics

ARENA Legacy Award
Established in 2006, this award recognizes individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the goals of PRIM&R by significantly promoting the ethical conduct of research through mentoring, teaching, and leadership. From 1986 to 2005, the Applied Research Ethics National Association (ARENA) was the membership division of PRIM&R. One of the many important contributions that ARENA made to the field of research ethics was to encourage the professional advancement of those individuals who work in the field of subject protections, as that, in turn, promotes excellence in the field and ultimately contributes to a more ethical research enterprise. This award is intended to honor individuals who embody these ideals by consistently fostering professional development through leadership, education, and mentoring.
Past recipients of the ARENA Legacy Award include:
2012 - Susan Delano
2011 - Gigi McMillan
2010 - Jeff Cooper
2009 - Jeff Cohen
2008 - William Freeman
2007 - Elizabeth Bankert
2006 - Marky Pitts
In 2005, PRIM&R was honored to recognize the notable achievements of four individuals who played critical roles in the founding of both PRIM&R and ARENA. Their leadership, dedication, and wisdom were, and continue to be, instrumental in our growth and success.
The recipients of the Founders Award were:
Special Service Award
The Special Service Award was intended “to recognize exemplary individuals who have made a valuable contribution to the goals of our organization and whose achievements promote the ethical conduct of research.” Recipients of the Special Service Award were members or non-members who made short-term, but vital, contributions to our organization and/or to the field of applied research ethics for human or animal research. (This award was replaced by the ARENA Legacy Award in 2006.)
Recipients of the Special Service Award were: Dale Hammerschmidt (2005), Dan Nelson (2003), Gary Ellis (2000)
The purpose of this award was to allow the ARENA President to recognize an individual who had made a valuable contribution to the ARENA Council, but whom was not necessarily an ARENA member. The award was made once in 2002 to Paul W. Goebel, Jr.
