Investigator Initiated Studies (IIS)

Submit proposal for a research project

If you have an interest in, or a proposal for a research project, please feel free to contact us. Our Global IIS Review Comittee reviews all submitted proposals maintaining confidentiality and determining its interest in the expected outcome and that no medical, scientific or ethical concern exist. 

We will consider:

  • Any risks and inconveniences for the patient weighted against the anticipated benefit of the results.
  • The overall suitability of the study versus the clinical development plan and that the study is conducted under the responsibility of a qualified clinician.

Please note that off-label use of our products are not approved within the IIS program.

To facilitate our review, your study proposal should cover the information detailed in the Study proposal form.

Please also provide details of the support you are requesting, e.g. financial, study products etc. Since this type of project is sponsored and owned by the investigator, we will not support more than a maximum of 49% of the total study cost.

Your request will be handled by your local contact and you can expect a response within approximately eight weeks. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your local contact or send an e-mail to  

For all clinical and animal studies we require a copy of the Ethics Committee/IRB approval before we can give any support.
