Addressing Knowledge Gaps in Growth Hormone Deficiency

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 general 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.

Through this RFP, it is our intent to support educational programs for pediatric endocrinologists.

Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will focus on: • Improving the understanding of the safety and efficacy of growth hormone (GH) administered once-daily in managing patients with short stature. • Improving the understanding of the relationship between adherence and treatment outcomes. • Increasing awareness of the emerging science of long-acting growth hormone to improve the understanding of their efficacy, safety, and potential clinical applicability.
