DePuy Synthes Companies invests in two types of investigator initiated research – clinical and scientific.
Each research request is individually evaluated by a DePuy Synthes Companies cross-functional team for compliance with pre-established criteria and alignment with our Company’s strategic initiatives.
Research funding is not contingent upon the use, purchase, or recommendation of DePuy Synthes Companies products.
Investigator initiated clinical study research is initiated and sponsored by a third party and relates to disease states, conditions, or treatments of patients relevant to the Company’s business interests or strategic initiatives.
Scientific research focuses on animal, cadaveric, biomechanical, biometric data collection, and other forms of research not involving live human research subjects.
