Medical Device Investigator Initiated Study

Investigator Initiated Studies (IIS) are valuable assets in medical research. Unlike conventional clinical trials, IIS are often conducted at research hospitals and universities. They fill gaps where clinical trials leave unanswered questions. Conducting an IIS is complex due to factors like limited industry support. In summary, IIS involve cross-functional collaboration, strategic impact assessment, and real-life experiences
