Alkermes contributes to independent education by supporting educational grants. Our focus areas include educational activities with pragmatic approaches to improve patient care and public health in the domains of schizophrenia, depression, and alcohol and opioid dependence. We expect to contribute to a better and expanded understanding of the underlying mechanisms of disease and their relevance to medications that address those characteristics, as well as the overall treatment in a broad sense that includes psychosocial methods. Alkermes’ educational grant funds may not be used to support overhead expenses of the applicant or for any other institution affiliated with the applicant. Grant requests must be unsolicited, should typically have multiple funders, support education on a wide range of treatment options, not promote a particular medicine and must not provide nor promise to Alkermes any tangible benefit.
