Support for Conducting Clinical Research: Investigator-Initiated Studies (IIS) Program at Stryker Medical

Physician and nurse investigators who want to conduct research using our products are invited to request support through our Investigator-Initiated Studies (IIS) Program. Click on the following links for products within the Stryker Acute CareEmergency Care Transport, and Sage product portfolios. 

The IIS Program is open to qualified clinical investigators who are interested in independently planning, designing, sponsoring, executing, and publishing their own research. Support for IIS research may provide funding and/or product support for original clinical research in therapeutic areas that are of mutual interest.

Current areas of research interest include:

  • Pressure injury prevention
  • Surgical site infection (SSI) prevention
  • Comprehensive oral care
  • Early patient mobility
  • Safe patient handling/injury prevention
  • Hospital-Acquired Infections (HAIs)
  • Urine management
  • Targeted temperature management

Proposals may be initiated by submitting an Investigator-Initiated Studies Request for Support Form (IISRSF), located below. After the IISRSF is received, you may be contacted by a member of Clinical Affairs to collect additional information or answer questions. Your proposal will then undergo a formal internal review, and a member of Clinical Affairs will contact you to share our support decision.
