What are PhRMA Foundation Value Assessment Initiative Research Awards?
The PhRMA Foundation launched its value assessment Research Awards in 2018, providing $300,000 yearly to support three leading national researchers whose work is impacting the development of new value-based care models in the United States. The researchers receive one-year grants of $100,000 to advance their work related to value-based care and cost-effectiveness in health care.
The Foundation seeks proposals to identify and address challenges in approaches used to assess the value of medicines and health care services.
Application deadline for 2022 Research Awards will be announced shortly.
