Honored Researcher Awardee Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD

Introducing Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD

Dr. Peter Gøtzsche, MD, is one of the world’s greatest leaders in promoting high standards of ethics and integrity in scientific research in medicine and psychiatry. It has been my privilege to invite him three times to visit and to speak at conferences in America. 

We are proud that Dr. Gøtzsche has accepted the first Honored Researcher Award for “Inspired and Courageous Contributions in Human Sciences and Services” from the Center for the Study of Empathic Therapy. As an award recipient he can publish any time on Honored Researchers without fear of censorship.

Dr. Gøtzsche is a specialist in internal medicine and a biologist. He cofounded the Cochrane Collaboration in 1993 and in the same year established the Nordic Cochrane Centre at Rigshospitalet Copenhagen, Denmark. He is professor in Clinical Research Design and Analysis at the University of Copenhagen and a world leader in the production, analysis and promotion of quality scientific research. His most recent books are Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime and Deadly Psychiatry and Organized Denial.

Thank you for accepting the award, Dr. Gøtzsche.
