Investigator Initiated Study Support

We accept unsolicited requests from independent researchers for the following:

  • Technical input (protocol development, statistical analyses, medical writing, etc.)
  • Funding and/or products to support independent research activities

We give these proposals a scientific, business and healthcare compliance review, which takes approximately 30 days from the submission date. The proposals are reviewed to ensure that:

  1. The subjects’ well-being is of primary importance.
  2. Medical and ethical concerns are raised and vetted.
  3. Proposals are original and contribute to the body of knowledge.
  4. The proposals are aligned with Nevro’s educational, business, and/or research interests.
  5. Proposals are likely to result in a publication or meet generally accepted public criteria.

Requests for research grant support of any kind, including product or financial support, are covered under this review process. If an application is approved, execution of a milestone-based contract is required for disbursement of the grant, and the investigator must attempt to present the research at a recognized educational forum and attempt to publish the study results in a peer-reviewed journal. This application process is intended for clinicians and scientists who are published and experienced in research.
