Pfizer Medical Grant on Gene Therapy Education

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement, or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies.
Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an internal Pfizer review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the knowledge gaps as outlined in the specific RFP.
For all independent medical education grants, the grant requester (and ultimately the grantee) is responsible for the design, implementation, and conduct of the independent initiative supported by the grant. Pfizer must not be involved in any aspect of project development, nor the conduct of the independent education program.
Date RFP Issued: October 18, 2021
Geographic Scope: Global
Clinical Area: Gene Therapy – Rare Disease
Link to full RFP: Multidisciplinary Gene Therapy Education - Recombinant Adeno-Associated Virus (rAAV)
Application Due Date: December 21, 2021
Specific Area of Interest: Through this RFP we seek to support educational initiatives that focus on one or both of the following:
