Funding innovative, novel research proposals that seek to advance the understanding and management of chronic pain

Pfizer Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company  announced the call for proposals for the 1st Global Awards for Advancing Chronic Pain Research (ADVANCE) in 2018.

Proposals will be reviewed by an external multidisciplinary, Independent Review Committee comprising renowned, global experts in chronic pain. The assessment process is completely independent of Pfizer Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company, with final responsibility for selection of Awardees resting with the Co-Chairs. The intent of the program is to fund approximately 5 grants between US $50,000 to US $200,000 for a total fund of US $1 million.
