Alkermes seeks to support research designed and conducted by independent clinicians and scientists through our Investigator Sponsored Studies (ISS) program.
The ISS program reviews study concept submissions related to the ISS Areas of Interest below on a rolling basis. Alkermes may occasionally announce a Request for Proposals (RFP) for research in clinical areas where gaps in data have been identified. Submission deadlines for any RFP topics will be announced on this site.
The ISS research Alkermes supports must be based in the United States and is typically conducted by experienced researchers who have an established history of successfully completing research with independent funding.
Alkermes can provide its marketed products to the ISS programs it supports. In addition, there may be financial support available.
If you intend to request only study drug from Alkermes and will be seeking funding from a different source, we strongly recommend you submit your request to Alkermes for review before submitting a funding request to any third party.
Early career investigators may also be interested in the Alkermes Pathways Research Awards®, our annual research grant program that is designed to support the next generation of researchers who are focused on schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, alcohol use disorder (AUD) or opioid use disorder (OUD.) The 2021 program is currently accepting applications.
