2022 Fellowship for Inflammatory Dermatological Diseases Competitive Grant Program

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 specific area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an expert review panel (ERP). Institutions are invited to submit an application as outlined in the specific RFP.

This RFP reflects Pfizer’s commitment to advancing research, innovation, a n d training for medical, nursing, and allied health professionals.

The goal of this RFP is to offer salary support for Dermatology and/or Allergy Fellowship programs. It is our intent to support fellowship programs at institutions with expertise in inflammatory and immune-mediated dermatological disorders and have a strong focus on clinical practice, research, and education to further the understanding of inflammatory skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis and alopecia areata. In addition, as the US demographics shift to become more racially diverse, the need to understand skin of color unmet needs will continue to increase. Therefore, programs that prioritize diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) principles in dermatology will also be considered.
