Tom Beauchamp, PhD

Senior Research Scholar (retired)

Dr. Beauchamp was Professor of Philosophy in addition to his role at the KIE. He took graduate degrees from Yale University and The Johns Hopkins University, where he received his PhD in 1970. He then joined the faculty of the Philosophy Department at Georgetown, and in the mid-70s accepted a joint appointment at the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. In late 1975, he joined the staff of the National Commission for the Protection of Human Subjects of Biomedical and Behavioral Research, where he wrote the bulk of The Belmont Report (1978).

Dr. Beauchamp's research interests are in the ethics of human-subjects research, the place of universal principles and rights in biomedical ethics, methods of bioethics, Hume and the history of modern philosophy, and business ethics. Beauchamp co-edited (with George G. Brenkert) The Oxford Handbook of Business Ethics, and edited a 1,000-page book of original articles, The Oxford Handbook of Ethics and Animals: a comprehensive, state-of-the-art presentation of the field not possible until very recently.

In 2004, Dr. Beauchamp was given the Lifetime Achievement Award of the American Society of Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) in recognition of outstanding contributions and significant publications in bioethics and the humanities. In 2003, he was presented Georgetown University's Career Recognition Award, which is awarded to a faculty member in the University each year for distinguished research across an entire career. In 1994, Indiana University awarded Beauchamp its "Memorial Award for Furthering Greater Understanding and Exchange of Opinions between the Professions of Law and Medicine."

In 2010 Dr. Beauchamp was awarded, together with longtime coauthor and collaborator Jim Childress, the Henry Knowles Beecher lifetime achievement award by the Hastings Center, one of the oldest bioethics centers in the world. In his acceptance remarks, Dr. Beauchamp focuses on the conceptual distinction between research and practice, a topic he argues is both overlooked and increasingly important in today's society.
