G1 Therapeutics contributes to independent education by supporting medical education grants. Our focus areas include educational activities with pragmatic approaches to improve patient care and public health in the domains of small cell lung cancer, oncology supportive care and chemotherapy-induced myelosuppression. We expect to contribute to an improved understanding of the underlying mechanisms of disease and their relevance to currently approved medications that address those characteristics while also developing innovative therapies that will improve the lives of those affected by cancer.
Medical education grant funding is available for medical education activities, including live, print, enduring, and/or web-based activities. Examples of educational requests include, but are not limited to:
- Accredited Continuing Education: Educational programs for healthcare providers such as physicians, nurses, and/or pharmacists that provide continuing education credits.
Who May Apply
Only US-based organizations may apply. Medical Education Grants may be awarded to (i) organizations qualified as nonprofit with tax exempt status under the U.S. Internal Revenue Code or (ii) for-profit organizations that are accredited continuing medical education providers.
How to Apply

Please email MedEdGrants@g1therapeutics.com to request an application form. Submission of a letter of request on requester letterhead is required in addition to a completed grant request form.
Areas of Interest for Medical Education Requests

Examples might include proposals for CME activities for regional meetings of oncology practitioners, or partnering with advanced practice nurse, case manager, or pharmacist societies in their CME efforts for their constituents.
