What We Fund
Gilead welcomes funding requests for innovative, high-impact projects that relate to at least one of five core therapeutic areas:
- Liver diseases
- Hematology and oncology
- Inflammatory and respiratory diseases
We consider a number of factors when reviewing grants, but it is most important for applications to demonstrate a strong commitment to — and capacity for — delivering the specific services your funded grant would support.
Grant applications are accepted throughout the year.

- Events or resources to educate patients about prevention and care options, such as:
- Web-based resources
- Printed materials

- Professional associations
- Patient advocacy and support groups
- Academic medical centers and universities
Medical & Scientific Support
Ongoing education is essential to ensuring that healthcare professionals can continue to deliver the best possible care based on the latest advances in medicine. Gilead supports high-impact, continuing medical education programs that expand the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals.
Gilead has funded a range of Medical and Scientific Support projects, including:
- Continuing medical education (CME) accredited by ACCME or another relevant organization
- Non-accredited CME in compliance with FDA guidelines
- Scientific conferences
- Lecture series or symposia
Please remember that attendance at Medical and Scientific Support events should be open to professionals in the community. The principal speaker may not be employed by, or the audience limited to, the funded organization.
The types of Medical and Scientific Support organizations Gilead has funded include:
- Medical universities
- Professional associations
- Community health centers
- Hospitals and academic medical centers
NOTE: If you represent an accredited medical education program that involves for-profit medical education companies or that has a national or regional scope (e.g., satellite symposia at scientific conferences), Gilead offers a separate application and review process managed by the Gilead Independent Medical Education Department (IMED). For more information, contact the IMED department at email@example.com.

Some of the charitable events Gilead has funded include:
- Local programs
