Quality Improvement Grants to Support Development of Cardiac Amyloid Centers

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:

•Supporting the development of cardiac amyloid centers that provide leadership, best practices, support and/or training of HCPs within a multidisciplinary team environment in order to improve the quality of care for cardiac amyloidosis patients especially in underserved populations

•Identifying significant barriers that contribute to geographic and racial healthcare disparities disproportionately impacting the hereditary ATTR-CM subtype patient population and addressing these challenges to increase earlier diagnosis and treatment

•Exploring strategies that empower patients to play an active role in understanding TTR amyloidosis and decision making regarding available diagnostic and disease management options
