What is an Investigator-Initiated Study (IIS)?
An Investigator-Initiated study is a clinical research study that is developed and conducted by the investigator. The investigator is responsible for independently conducting the clinical study and assumes responsibility for ensuring compliance with all local laws and regulatory requirements. Interscope Medical may offer support for investigator-initiated studies, including assistance with grant writing and technical support. Further information on how to submit a research proposal and details of our review process follows. Interscope cannot contribute to the design of the study.

What is the review process?
Interscope Medical will evaluate study proposals/protocols, with input from advisors, as necessary, using the following criteria:
Potential impact on Interscope Medical’s company objectives and strategy
Adherence to Good Clinical Practice
Suitability of Interscope Medical’s devices for the proposed study
Unfortunately, Interscope Medical is unable to support all applications.
Overview of the review process:
Contact: The investigator completes an application form and submits it to Interscope Medical
Initial discussion with Interscope Medical: We will consider the proposal summary and may subsequently contact the investigator to initiate further discussion.
Full Proposal: Interscope may then ask the investigator to develop a full proposal/study protocol.
Review: The full proposal will then be reviewed by Interscope Medical. The investigators will be contacted once the final decision has been made.
