Independent Medical Education and Charitable Donations

Astellas believes that by supporting high-quality, independent medical education, we help the medical community to improve the overall safety and quality of patient care and treatment. As a way to serve the community at large, we also provide charitable donations to various non-profit organizations. Communicating this educational and charitable support to the public is one of the many ways that Astellas demonstrates this commitment.

In 2010, we began posting information about independent medical education grants and charitable donations provided to organizations in the United States through the Astellas Grant Management System. We believe that through this transparency, we strengthen our value as a pharmaceutical company known for scientific knowledge, a high sense of ethics, and reliable, innovative medicines.
