Value Assessment Initiative
The PhRMA Foundation has launched the Value Assessment Initiative to help advance high-quality care in the United States, while avoiding low value or inefficient care. The initiative offers generous funding to support research and innovative efforts to assess the value of medicines and health care services, improve patient outcomes and reduce inefficiency.
With a wide range of Pre and Post Doctoral Fellowships, Sabbatical Fellowships, and Research Starter Grants, the Foundation offers a myriad of opportunities to advance your career.
2017 Foundation grant awardee Hunter Shain, PhD, is part of a cancer research team at UC San Francisco that is systematically tracing how new mutations and changes in gene activity break down cellular protective mechanisms, allowing moles to transform into melanoma and begin to spread.
The new studies also identify new biomarkers that could be used in the clinic to more reliably detect rapidly progressing melanomas that require additional treatment beyond surgical removal.
