Did you know that the PhRMA Foundation funded research on Taxol® over 40 years ago that lead to what is now one of the most successful oncology treatments in the world? Or that 70% of the scientists we’ve supported have had their research backed by the NIH?
For more than 50 years, the PhRMA Foundation has been awarding brilliant, budding scientists with research-support grants that help patients around the world live longer, healthier lives. In fact, since our founding, we’ve awarded $83 million in funding to support this critical work (including $3 million last year alone).
Today we provide support for a wide range of research disciplines – from informatics and pharmacology to translational medicine. Remaining nimble in the ever-changing field of health care, this year we also launched an exciting new program designed to address the shift in health care delivery from a volume-based model to a value-based one. The Value Assessment Initiative will provide over $1 million dollars in grants in three categories for research aimed at assessing the value of medicines and health care services to improve patient outcomes and reduce inefficiency.
In an effort to keep stakeholders aware of these and other initiatives, this year we launched “PhRMA Foundation News,” an email newsletter that will highlight opportunities for funding to support tomorrow’s breakthrough researchers. Past award recipients are today’s trailblazers – making significant drug discoveries, starting and running companies, publishing journals, conducting clinical trials, leading regulatory agencies, and improving the lives of patients around the globe.
“PhRMA Foundation News” will be distributed several times a year to keep our stakeholders updated about Foundation grants and activities as well as the work of our award recipients.
