Quality Improvement Grants to Support the Delivery of Gene Therapies to Patients with Rare Disease

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 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 practice gaps as outlined in the specific RFP.

Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will focus on preparing and/or optimizing multidisciplinary care teams for the integration of gene therapy into the treatment armamentarium for patients with a Rare Disease. Support is available for the development of leadership, best practices, SOP development, site readiness, support and/or training of HCPs within a multidisciplinary team environment to optimize the quality of care for patients who have/will have gene therapy in their treatment armamentarium.

Projects that address recombinant adeno-associated virus gene therapy in Rare Disease and are therapeutic area and disease area agnostic (i.e., platform) will be prioritized.
