We also will consider non-clinical research collaborations, such as preclinical and non-interventional studies.

Aclaris provides no guarantee that it will provide support for submitted proposals. The terms under which Aclaris will provide support will be set forth in a written agreement.

All submitted requests and documents will be considered non-confidential.

Medical education grants

Aclaris recognizes the importance of independent medical education in the U.S. Educational activities can improve patient care by fostering increased understanding of scientific, clinical, or policy issues among health care professionals. We provide funding to external organizations in the form of independent medical education grants which support a specific educational or professional development activity for health care professionals that will benefit the public and improve patient health and safety. We also provide product to help facilitate the hands-on training by experts during medical education meetings and conferences to ensure best practice and appropriate use.

We seek to provide an efficient grant review process to respond to requests.
