Call for Independent Medical Education (IME) Grants

Adaptive Biotechnologies (“Adaptive”) is committed to supporting independent medical education that contributes to the scientific and medical understanding of therapies, disease states, and diagnostic categories aligned with Adaptive’s areas of medical and/or scientific interest.

As part of this ongoing commitment, Adaptive will accept grant requests for bona fide educational purposes from Educational providers that are accredited to provide continuing education (i.e., CME, CE) by a national accrediting body, such as the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), or other such accreditor.

These organizations are invited to submit grant applications for IME activities that will address demonstrated, specific gaps in education, practice, or care. The grant requester (and ultimately the grantee) is responsible for the design, implementation, sponsorship, and conduct of the independent initiative supported by the grant, including compliance with any regulatory requirements.
