Brief Description

Scientific Project Support provides funding for general research, translational research, other research or development projects, and/or other initiatives of research organizations, labs, and academic institutions. As part of our company-wide commitment to ensuring a healthier future for all patients, we prioritize projects that build a more fair and just healthcare system in the following areas:

  • Inclusive research: Reducing barriers to participation in clinical trials so healthcare solutions are designed for all patients
  • Equity in care: Ensuring all patients have access to high quality care
  • Future life sciences workforce: Create sustainable pathways into the life sciences for underrepresented groups, particularly low-income students of color

Research collaborations, clinical trials, and associated correlative research involving or undertaken in relation to Genentech or Roche products (whether investigational and/or approved for other uses) are excluded from this type of support. For information regarding these types of programs, please refer to our pipeline.

Genentech prioritizes action-oriented research projects that are designed to build the evidence base needed to promote health equity and reduce disparities in healthcare access, quality, and outcomes amongst populations facing the greatest needs. Evidence generated from Scientific Projects should support health systems and hospitals, practitioners, advocates, and decision-makers in setting priorities and allocating resources towards solutions that improve the health and wellbeing of all patients within Genentech’s disease areas of focus.
