Grant and Donation Requests
At BIOTRONIK, Inc., we are committed to helping people with heart and blood vessel diseases live healthy, fulfilling lives. We work to support physicians and healthcare systems to provide meaningful innovations that result in effective care for their patients. Our company allocates resources each year to support requests for grants/donations which are primarily applied to support:
- Educational Grants – for educational activities to further optimal patient care related to BIOTRONIK’s approved therapies and related disease states; and patient cardiac device/disease education, including vascular intervention treatment
- EP Fellowships – academic support for electrophysiology fellows
- Research Grants – investigator-initiated research that increases the understanding of cardiac device therapy or vascular intervention/coronary stent therapy; or which demonstrates clinical outcomes that promote optimal patient care
- Charitable Donations - for fundraisers by non-profit organizations – those with 501(c)3 status from the US Internal Revenue Service - to increase awareness/decrease cardiac disease in the community
- Exhibit Fee - for third-party educational events, sponsors may offer exhibit space to vendors. BIOTRONIK may decide to exhibit/advertise at these events to increase awareness of our products and services
