GlaxoSmithKline Drug Discovery and Development Research Grant Program 2004

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is pleased to announce a call for applications for its 2004 Drug Discovery and Development Research Grant Program. GSK will award $250,000 in grants for innovative HIV/AIDS drug research in recognition of the need to produce new alternatives and hope in the fight against the HIV/AIDS pandemic. Since the inception of the program in 2001, GSK has awarded $1.25 million and honored 14 researchers for their groundbreaking work toward new pharmaceutical strategies to combat the HIV virus.

Applications are now being solicited for 2004 research grants and must be submitted by July 31. For detailed information about the GSK Drug Discovery and Development Research Grant Program, as well as an application, please call 1-888-527-6935 or visit www.dddresearchgrant.com.

The one-time research grants range from $25,000 to $150,000 and are intended to further the development of inventive treatments for HIV/AIDS, including:

  • therapies aimed at treating infection,
  • prophylactic vaccines, or
  • microbicides designed to prevent transmission of the virus.

"As we enter the fourth year of the program, it's rewarding to witness the progress that the first grant recipients have made. The grants have enabled researchers to improve testing processes, submit research for publication, experiment with new hypotheses and strive to develop medications and vaccines for patients worldwide," said Doug Manion, M.D., vice president of clinical development and medical affairs for GSK. "We are pleased to help researchers in their quest to unlock the mysteries of HIV."

The research grant carries no obligation to the recipient's organization for licensure, patenting or transfer of confidential information, although GSK may discuss the possibility of future collaboration with some applicants.
