Transparency of Alnylam’s support is required and is not considered a tangible benefit.
Educational Grants (non-CME)
Funding provided in response to an unsolicited request from an eligible third-party organization that has independently applied for grant support for medical education activities or education directed to HCPs, patient organizations, patients, or other members of the health care community. Alnylam may not receive any tangible business benefit. Transparency of Alnylam’s support is required and is not considered a tangible benefit.
