Request for Proposals (RFP)

Raising Awareness and Promoting Timely Diagnosis of TTR Amyloidosis

In recent years, Global Bridges at Mayo Clinic and Pfizer Global Medical Grants have supported independent projects focused on raising awareness and closing knowledge gaps to reduce the time it takes for patients to be correctly diagnosed and make treatment more accessible, while supporting the development of a global network of TTR amyloidosis experts. Expanding the community of practice will help decrease the distance patients need to travel to be diagnosed, although valuable guidance may still be obtained from experienced centers further from home. This RFP is a continuation of this program.

For all independent quality improvement grants, the grant requester (and ultimately the grantee) is responsible for the design, implementation, and conduct of the independent initiative supported by the grant. Pfizer must not be involved in any aspect of project development, nor the conduct or monitoring of the quality improvement program.
