Scientific Project Support

Genentech is committed to supporting programs open to a broad audience that benefit patients, the scientific or medical community, and/or public health.

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. 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 refer to our pipeline.

Decision Making

Genentech has a rolling review policy when evaluating funding requests for scientific project support. This allows qualified requestors the opportunity to apply anytime during year.

Requests must be submitted at least 60 days prior to the project/program start date. Decisions are made on a case-by-case basis; you will usually hear back from Genentech prior to the project/program start date.

Letter of Agreement (LOA)

All grants must abide by the terms in the Genentech Letter of Agreement (LOA), which is issued to an authorized signer of your organization once the application is approved. You must agree to the terms of the LOA before any funding is issued. If you have any questions on the agreement terms, please contact us at (877) 313-5778.
