Funding may not be provided directly to healthcare professionals or their practices.

  • Insmed will not approve funding for programs or projects that have already occurred
  • Insmed requires that funding support be disclosed publicly

Types of Funding Requests Supported by Insmed

Grants, Sponsorships, and Donations

All grant requests, regardless of organization or program location, must be submitted through our centralized process. Please contact us grants@insmed.com with any questions about Insmed processes and requirements.

Medical Education Grants
Sponsorship

Insmed may provide grant support for independent education programs that benefit healthcare professionals and their patients through fostering scientific exchange and understanding of evidence-based clinical care.

Independent education can enhance awareness of serious rare lung diseases in the medical and patient communities and advance clinical knowledge, competence, and performance among healthcare providers. This may ultimately lead to improved health outcomes in patients afflicted with these diseases and a better overall health status in the patient community.

Medical Education Grants may be provided for:

  • Accredited (CME/CE/CPD) medical education for healthcare professionals
  • Non-accredited medical education for healthcare professionals
  • Independent education for patients

Programs supported through grants are independent of Insmed influence in that the third-party recipient of the grant retains full control over the program content, faculty, and attendees.

Insmed does not provide “unrestricted grants” for educational program support. The purpose for grant funding must be designated, and that designated purpose is the only one for which the funds may be used. Organizations that have provided sales or marketing services for Insmed within the past 3 years are excluded from receiving grants.

Calls for Grant Applications

Insmed may issue Calls for Grant Applications as an optional additional method to notify organizations that grant funding is available for specific programs and focus areas.
