With COVID-19 impacting the nation more dramatically each day, we wanted to provide an update from the PhRMA Foundation on steps we are taking in the midst of the crisis and what you can expect from us in coming weeks and months.
Foundation staff is following all recommendations from the CDC, as well as other federal, state and local directives. Like many of you, we are working remotely, but the Foundation’s operational functions have not been affected.
Our grant-funding processes remain in place, and funding for our current awardees will not be impacted.
The process of determining recipients of our 2020 research grants continues and those considering applying for funding, or who have already applied, should continue to follow the steps outlined at the PhRMA Foundation website. We will keep you posted of any new developments.
In the meantime, we are taking a moment to reflect that the work of the nation’s health care research sector has never been more essential, and will be even more so in the days and weeks to come. We are grateful for all you do.
Again, we will keep you posted of any new developments impacting Foundation operations.
