Funding education that ultimately benefits patients

Daiichi Sankyo adheres to the commercial support standards established by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME®). The company also complies with the principles established by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) Compliance Guidance for Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA) Code on Interactions with Medical Professionals.

Daiichi Sankyo believes education is a source to accelerating best, personalized evidence into practice for the best interest of clinical science and practice and the elevation of patient care. Our commitment is to make grant funding available for independent, fair and balanced, scientifically accurate medical education initiatives that receive no influence from our organization in either submission, design, or implementation. Grant conduct is required to comply with all expected regulatory requirements. Daiichi Sankyo therefore accepts grant submissions that are either non-solicited or in response to call for grant applications, better known as Requests for Proposals (RFPs). When published, RFPs will provide details regarding externally referenced educational, clinical, practical, and/or research gaps in specific therapeutic focus areas, along with referenced-driven recommendations for learning audiences, and timeline submission requirements. We invite eligible organizations to log into the grant portal for information on currently available RFPs.

      • Lectures or other non-CME educational activities at scientific conferences
      • Non-CME certified educational grants to patient advocacy groups or professional societies
      • Non-CME certified disease state education and awareness
