Investigator-Initiated Studies

GLLP recognizes the importance of supporting Investigator-Initiated Studies (IISs) that have the potential to improve patient outcomes, advance medical and scientific knowledge about our products as well as generate promising medical advancements. Results of such research may lead to greater understanding of our therapies and their potential applications, improved patient care and provide new ideas for further research.

GLLP accepts unsolicited requests for IISs from academic and community based clinician-scientists who are interested in conducting their own research. Support is awarded based on the scientific merit of each submitted proposal, investigator qualifications, study budget, alignment with GLLP objectives, and site feasibility as reviewed through a formal IIS review process. GLLP may provide financial support, study product, or a combination of both; however, GLLP is not the study sponsor and assumes no sponsor obligations. 

To submit a request for support of an IIS, please visit our Medical Grants Portal.

 

 

Independent Medical Education

GLLP recognizes the importance of supporting accredited and non-accredited independent medical education (IME) activities for healthcare professionals to increase their knowledge and skills to better address patients’ dermatologic and skin health needs. Results of such activities may lead to greater understanding of the therapeutic areas that we treat, our products and their potential applications, as well as improved patient care.

GLLP accepts unsolicited requests from organizations who are interested in conducting their own accredited or non-accredited, independent, medical education activities. Support is awarded based on the identified need for the activity, target audience, stated learning objectives and educational merit, proposed outcomes, activity budget, and alignment with GLLP areas of interest as reviewed through a formal IME review process. GLLP may provide financial and/or in-kind product grants; however, no further assistance will be provided, including the distribution of invitations for an IME activity or program. 

To submit a request for support of an IME activity, please visit our Medical Grants Portal.

 

 

Residency Program Aesthetic Product Training

GLLP recognizes the importance of supporting residency programs that provide formal and structured on-label injection trainings involving our portfolio of aesthetic injectable products. Results of such activities may lead to greater understanding of the therapeutic areas that we treat, our products and their potential applications, as well as improved patient care.

GLLP accepts unsolicited requests for in-kind product grants from Residency Program Directors at ACGME-accredited dermatology, plastic surgery, ophthalmology, or otolaryngology academic institutions who are interested in conducting their own on-label injection trainings.
