Investigator Initiated Research (IIR)

Investigator Initiated Research (IIR) is research in which an Investigator and their Institution have complete control over their Protocol, own the data, and the Institution acts as the sponsor of the study.  Investigators and Institutions can submit their Protocol for Baxter's review and consideration for funding and/or product support.

Independent Medical Education (IME) Funding

Independent Medical Education (IME) funding provides continuing education to Healthcare Professionals. Fundings are for education activities to further expand or provide updates in a particular area. These may include symposia, workshops, or congresses. The activities could be accredited or non-accredited. These fundings are not for individual scholarships, rather for a training session that is supported by a healthcare organization.
