ResMed changes lives with award-winning medical devices and cutting-edge cloud-based software applications that diagnose, treat and manage sleep disordered breathing (SDB), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and other chronic respiratory diseases. ResMed is a global leader in connected care, with millions of patients remotely monitored every day. Our team is committed to creating the world's best tech-driven medical device company - improving quality of life, reducing the impact of chronic disease, and saving healthcare costs in more than 100 countries.
As part of our commitment to deliver innovative therapies to patients across the globe, ResMed believes in the need to support ethical, independent clinical research, conducted by qualified third-party investigators. Investigator-Initiated research (IIR) serves as an important complement to ResMed-sponsored research, to help better understand the benefits and risks of our therapies, as well as to explore new opportunities to address unmet medical needs. Such clinical research must be aimed at addressing meaningful scientific and/or clinical objectives, supported by valid study designs in which the safety, welfare and privacy rights of patients are of paramount importance.
Like many other health care-focused companies, ResMed supports the funding of Investigator Initiated Research (IIR) through a well-defined process with robust governance measures. Preference will be given to programs that align with the ResMed mission of advancing innovative technologies in sleep and respiratory medicine. Support is typically provided in the manner of funding and/or devices, depending on the type of research.
Key areas of interest include:
ResMed accepts unsolicited concept proposals from potential investigators. If a concept proposal is of interest, ResMed will make a follow-up request for a full submission. A full submission must be received in order for a request to be considered for approval.
Review of IIR Proposals occur quarterly at ResMed. Deadlines for all IIR Proposal submissions will be: January 20th, April 25th, July 13th, October 18th. The ResMed Clinical Review Board will review all IIR Proposals at the end of the submission period, and provide their review feedback to the Investigator within 2 weeks.
