Medical Education Grants

Ipsen seeks to advance scientific knowledge and enhance patient care by funding certain types of requests for healthcare provider or patient education from the medical and scientific community.

Our areas of therapeutic interest fall into 3 categories: oncology, neurosciences, and rare diseases. In particular, we are interested in funding education relating to acromegaly, neuroendocrine tumors, pancreatic cancer, and neuromuscular and movement disorders. In general, Ipsen has a preference for programs that are supported by multiple organizations.

MedEd Grants

Who May Request a Grant?

Grant requests may come from academic institutions, state or national medical associations or societies, disease foundations and associations, patient associations, or other educational providers. For academic institutions, the University Grants Office should apply for the grant, rather than an individual department or research group. Grants will not be given to individuals. Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., does not fund noneducational expenses.
