Clinical Research in Europe

How we support your clinical studies for Stryker Craniomaxillofacial and Neurosurgical portfolios.



Our philosophy

Discover our clinical research program



Our clinical research program aims to generate the evidence needed to make healthcare better by assisting clinicians and other healthcare professionals (HCPs) make informed and sound decisions about the medical treatment of their patients.

Alongside Stryker-led single and multicenter studies, Stryker is interested in sponsoring innovative Investigator Initiated Studies (IIS) for our Neurosurgical and Maxillofacial portfolios within the scope of our research philosophy. The funding amount will be determined on a per study basis, respecting the principles of fair market value and compliant interaction with Healthcare Professionals.

Stryker has a dedicated process in place for supporting IIS related to the on-label use of our products. This process is managed by the Clinical Research Team and all research proposals received by Stryker undergo an extensive review and approval procedure.
