Investigator Initiated Research (IIR)
An IIR, or Investigator Initiated Research, is a research grant opportunity where investigators can submit their protocol for Baxter’s review and consideration. An important distinction is that the Investigator and their Institution have complete control over their protocol, they own the data, and the Institution acts as the Sponsor of the study. Our role is to provide funding and/or product support, as well as potential specialized services.
Independent Medical Education (IME) Funding
Independent Medical Education (IME) funding provides continuing education to Healthcare Professionals. Fundings are for education activities to further expand or provide updates in a particular area. These may include symposia, workshops, or congresses. The activities could be accredited or non-accredited. These fundings are not for individual scholarships, rather for a training session that is supported by a healthcare organization.
Our relationships with universities and institutes allow us to partner with leading innovators from around the world to bring together the best minds to understand unmet healthcare needs, generate new ideas and solve challenges.
Things You Should Know
Baxter's acceptance of your proposal for review is not an indication that Baxter will fund your research. By submitting your materials to Baxter for review, you understand that Baxter will not treat the information as confidential or proprietary and Baxter has no obligation to keep it confidential.
Please do not consider any request approved until you have received written documentation from Baxter notifying you of the grant approval. Although you may receive notification that the grant has been approved, actual receipt of funding is contingent upon timely execution of a grant agreement by both parties. Submission of application(s) is deemed acceptance of these provisions.
