Alkermes is interested in contributing to independent medical education through grants. Our particular focus this year includes educational activities with pragmatic approaches to improve patient care and public health in the domains of schizophrenia, alcohol and opioid dependence, and depression. We expect to contribute to a better understanding of the treatment in a broader sense, including psychosocial methods as well as medications.
