http://www.phrmafoundation.org

The PhRMA Foundation is accepting applications to support individuals beginning independent research careers in health outcomes at the faculty level. The program is not intended for individuals in postdoctoral training. However, those enrolled in postdoctoral training programs scheduled to conclude by July 1, 2018, who will hold an academic appointment by that time, may apply. Those holding academic rank of instructor or assistant professor, and investigators at the doctoral level with equivalent positions, are eligible to apply—provided the proposed research is neither directly nor indirectly subsidized to any significant degree by an extramural support mechanism. All applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Health Outcomes research spans a broad spectrum of issues related to health-care delivery, from studies evaluating effectiveness of a pharmaceutical intervention, to the impact of reimbursement policies on outcomes of care. It also ranges from the development and use of tools to perform patient-based assessments to analyses of ways in which results of outcomes research are disseminated to providers or consumers to encourage behavior change. Outcomes research incorporates a variety of methods from different disciplines. The application of outcomes research principles in evaluating the design, delivery, and effectiveness of pharmaceuticals includes but isn’t limited to the following general areas: Pharmacoeconomics and patient-reported outcomes. Indirect costs are not allowed for this award.

Application Deadline: February 1, 2018 at 11:59pm EDT. Award notifications made April 2018. Guidelines: http://www.phrmafoundation.org/2018-awards/research-starter-grants/health-outcomes%E2%80%A2-informatics/
