Advancing Science through Investigator-led Research
The research from investigator-initiated studies may expand our understanding of our products and their potential applications. Plus, it may improve patient care and spark new ideas for further disease-related research.
The AbbVie IIS Program provides an opportunity to academic and community-based physicians and researchers worldwide interested in conducting their own research to apply for research support.
Please be aware that AbbVie will close the IIS Submission Portal from November 24, 2017 to December 11, 2017 to allow us to transition to SPIRIT, a new web-based system. Current users of Visiontracker (Insights2) will be sent instructions to register in SPIRIT. If you are a new user, the SPIRIT website will be available as of December 11, 2017 for registration. On that date, please return to this site and a link will be provided to the new SPIRIT portal.
How to apply
If you’re an investigator, you can initiate the application process by submitting a brief summary of the proposed research to AbbVie through our IIS Portal. IIS applications are accepted on a rolling submission basis.
After you apply
Following the review of the initial submission, you may be asked to submit a full protocol and final study budget for further evaluation. We hold protocol review meetings monthly. Submission of a proposal does not imply or guarantee approval. The committee evaluates proposals according to their scientific merit, alignment with our areas of research interest and available funding. Financial and/or product support is contingent upon full execution of the research agreement by both parties.
