The Biogen Grants Office supports programs and initiatives that offer the Healthcare Professional (HCP) and Patient communities with information on disease prevention, diagnosis, and management. Independent and balanced information on the latest discoveries about disease states and treatment options helps HCPs make high quality decisions and achieve better patient health outcomes.
We believe it is critical for HCPs to continue their medical education and understand the scientific and therapeutic advances in certain disease states. By funding independent medical educational programs, we help HCPs enhance their knowledge, competence, and performance in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases where clinical practice gaps exist. Evidence-based independent education helps close these gaps.
The Grants Office strives to build deep connections within Patient communities by supporting initiatives that empower and support patients, family members, and caregivers. Another aspect of our mission is to address unmet community funding needs related to requests for patient educational grants, corporate sponsorships, exhibit opportunities, and charitable contributions.
