The scientific research produced by independent Investigators is vital for complementing Radius-sponsored research to further understand the benefit/risk profile of our therapies as well as explore new opportunities to address unmet medical needs.

The aim of the Radius Investigator Initiated Studies (IIS) Program is to support unsolicited, and independently initiated and conducted, studies that have the potential to enhance scientific and medical knowledge. This independent research must address meaningful scientific and/or medical objectives via valid study designs in which the privacy rights, safety and welfare of patients are of paramount importance.

Therapeutic Area of Interest

Osteoporosis: Diagnosis, Treatment, Disease State, Quality of Care

The IIS is to be conducted independent of Radius. The Investigator or affiliated study sponsor is responsible for the study concept, design, operational execution, data handling, data analysis/interpretation, subsequent reporting/publication, and ensuring compliance with all applicable laws and regulations.

How to apply for IIS support

Researchers are invited to submit their concept proposal. Concept proposals, inclusive of preclinical research, clinical and outcomes research, will be reviewed collectively by the Radius IIS Committee based on scientific merit and alignment with Radius areas of research interest.

Each concept proposal must include

  1. Name and address for the institution
  2. Study concept including statistical methodology
  3. Amount requested (drug and/or funds) and corresponding budget
  4. Anticipated timing of the study (start and duration)

The Requestor will be informed about the outcome of the Committee review. Should Radius be interested in the concept proposal, the Investigator will be invited to submit further documentation, including a final protocol which will be reviewed by the Committee in connection with a final decision.
