Erich Loewy, the first bioethics chair at the University of California, Davis, has died, reports the school. He was 83. Loewy became the bioethics chair at Davis’s medical school in 1996 and developed a bioethics program there that worked with researchers, medical students, and clinical staff. “Dr. Loewy was an inspirational thought leader who challenged and inspired us all to embrace the highest ethical standards,” says Claire Pomeroy, the dean of the medical school, in a statement.
