As part of our commitment to improving healthcare, Genzyme provides funding to support medical and scientific organisations, healthcare organisations, patient associations and registered charities. We support funding programs relevant to our areas of medical interest.

Funding categories

Genzyme provides three main categories for support funding:

  • Educational grants
    Contributions to fund quality medical education programs designed to raise awareness and understanding about disease areas, improve the knowledge and clinical skills of healthcare providers and address the information needs of consumers and their caregivers.
  • Research grants
    Contributions to healthcare organisations to conduct vital research in improving quality use of medicines and better patient outcomes.
  • Patient Association funding
    Contributions to fund programs organised by patient associations whose aims are to provide further support to patients, their caregivers and/or the health and wellbeing of the general public.


All registered medical and scientific organisations, healthcare organisations, patient associations and charities are eligible for funding.

Genzyme is unable to provide funding directly to individuals.
