Investigator Initiated Study
The Boehringer lngelheim IIS Program is offered to all qualified academic and community based scientists or consortia who are interested in independently proposing and conducting their own research. Boehringer lngelheim may provide financial support and/or drug for approved IIS.
Boehringer lngelheim does not serve as the regulatory sponsor for IIS.
In general, IIS are not registrational studies and may be proof of concept or exploratory in nature. The budget for such studies should reflect fair market value for all costs, and cannot include direct salary support for the principal investigator.
Boehringer lngelheim requires researchers to apply for funding via an online application process. Researcher applications received through other means will not be considered for review.
