Investigator Initiated Studies (IIS)

At ECIR, we recognize the pivotal role that Investigator-Initiated Studies (IIS) play in drug development and furthering the understanding of current medicines.

For this reason, IIS are a top priority at ECIR. Our team of investigators are constantly developing research proposals that are unique and forward-thinking. IIS are essential to expanding the understanding of medications which are currently approved and in development. Our IIS employ currently approved medications in different ways, including in different patient populations and disease states. We are also exploring new uses for old medications. ECIR, similar to academic institutions, is capable of developing research proposals, presenting the concept to sponsors, preparing a comprehensive protocol, and executing complex clinical studies.

After study completion, ECIR emphasizes dissemination of results, presenting data at key Scientific Congresses and publishing manuscripts in well respected peer-reviewed journals. Our team of specialists and primary care physicians have diverse interests which allow for ECIR to engage in studies that traverse the disease continuum. Our biostatistics program facilitates appropriate study design, accurate data analysis, and ensures the validity of our results.
