What We Fund

Gilead welcomes funding requests for innovative, high impact projects that relate to at least one of our core therapeutic areas:

  • HIV
  • Liver disease
    • HCV
    • HBV
    • HDV
  • Oncology
    • Hematology
    • Solid tumors
  • Inflammatory and respiratory diseases

We consider a number of factors when reviewing grant requests, but it is most important for applications to demonstrate a strong commitment to — and capacity for — delivering the specific services your funded grant would support.

Types of Organizations We Support

Patient Community Support:

Lack of awareness is often a significant barrier to disease screening and treatment — especially among at-risk populations — leading to acute disparities in care. Gilead supports patients and their communities by funding a variety of awareness-raising projects.

Examples of Patient Community Support projects Gilead has funded include:

  • Events or resources to educate patients about prevention and care options, such as:
    • Presentations
    • Web-based resources
    • Printed materials
    • Testing and screening initiatives
  • The types of Patient Community Support organizations Gilead has funded include:
    • Patient advocacy and support groups
    • Hospitals and clinics
    • Nonprofit service organizations
    • Professional associations
    • Academic medical centers and universities

Medical & Scientific Support:

Ongoing education is essential to ensuring that healthcare professionals can continue to deliver the best possible care based on the latest advances in medicine. Gilead supports high-impact, continuing medical education programs that expand the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals.

Gilead has funded a range of Medical and Scientific Support projects, including:

  • Continuing medical education (CME) accredited by ACCME or another relevant organization
  • Non-accredited CME in compliance with FDA guidelines
  • Scientific conferences
  • Lecture series or symposia

Please remember that attendance at Medical and Scientific Support events should be open to professionals in the community. The principal speaker may not be employed by, or the audience limited to, the funded organization.

The types of Medical and Scientific Support organizations Gilead has funded include:

  • Medical universities
  • Professional associations
  • Community health centers
  • Hospitals and academic medical centers

If you represent an accredited medical education program that involves for-profit medical education companies or that has a national or regional scope (e.g., satellite symposia at scientific conferences), Gilead offers a separate application and review process managed by the Gilead Independent Medical Education Department (IMED).
