We are dedicated to improving the quality of human life by enabling people to do
more, feel better and live longer. As part of this commitment, we recognise the
valuable role that our support of investigator-sponsored studies (ISS) plays in
fulfilling this mission. An investigator-sponsored study is a research effort where
the sponsor of the work is an investigator, healthcare institution, or some form
of medical network external to GSK and is seeking our support to conduct the work.
This support can be in the form of product, funding, or a combination of both.
We only support ISS that have a legitimate scientific purpose. The decision to support
a study proposal is based on the importance of the research objectives to medical
science or patient care, the scientific rationale for the proposed methodology,
and the ability of the study sponsor to deliver a high-quality ethical study.
We do not support ISS in order to reward healthcare professionals for using, purchasing,
recommending, or prescribing GSK products or to persuade them to do so by supporting
the proposed research.
GSK’s policy is that human subject research results be made public. Therefore, as a condition of
support the sponsor must provide a Public Disclosure Plan (PDP) as requested in the submission
form. This should include details around publications and postings to a worldwide public register for
all human subject research.
Any failure by the sponsor to meet the public disclosure commitments as detailed in PDP and legal
agreement will be taken into consideration when reviewing any subsequent proposals submitted by
the sponsor and may result in a decision by GSK not to support the proposal.
