Inflammatory and Immune-Mediated Dermatologic Disorders Competitive Grant Program

Funding Agency:
Pfizer Inc.

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 external review panel (ERP) to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the specific gaps in research, practice or care as outlined in the specific RFP.

The intent of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to support preclinical, clinical and outcomes research through a competitive grant program with the intent to increase medical knowledge in the diagnosis and management of inflammatory and immune-mediated dermatologic disorders.

Pfizer is interested in supporting high quality basic science, translational, clinical and outcomes research in atopic dermatitis, alopecia areata, Phosphodiesterase 4-inhibition (PDE4), and Janus Kinase (JAK) pathways.
