Purpose and Objective of Program
NICO Corporation is committed to improved patient and economic outcomes through the continued expansion of valid clinical information supporting those outcomes with the use of minimally disruptive and automated technologies. With this commitment in mind, the company has established an Investigator Initiated Study Program (IIS).
The aim of the program is to provide support for research conducted on novel applications of the use of NICO technologies in clinical practice which lead to improved or significant change to clinical, economic, or operational outcomes. Selected investigators may be provided financial support ranging from $1000, up to $10,000, accordingly. All projects supported by this program are conducted by the applicant(s) and their respective affiliate institution(s). As such, NICO is neither involved in collecting information, in conducting research, or in the publication of any project findings.
Requests for funding may be submitted at any time. Proposed concepts are reviewed for scientific merit, feasibility, possible contribution to the respective body of clinical knowledge, and compatibility with NICO’s long-term technological focus. Those requests which are deemed to have substantial merit and scientific potential and are in line with NICO’s technology goals will be considered for funding. It is important that requests clearly highlight the objective(s) and scientific importance of the proposed research.
Initial proposals will be evaluated by committee based on the above.Following review, the committee will reach out to discuss any questions or request for additional information. Should your study be selected, additional documentation will be provided.
For the strongest proposal, please make sure to:
- Clearly describe your study objective(s)
- Place emphasis on the clinical or scientific importance of your study
- Follow the instructions to the best of your ability and reach out with questions
When you are ready, submitting a proposal to the evaluation committee for the IIS Program is simple!
Currently, only sites in the United States or its territories are eligible to apply.
