Investigator-Initiated Studies

Thank you for your interest in Acadia’s IIS program.

We are committed to supporting investigator-initiated studies (IIS) with the goal of improving patient health and quality of life by increasing the medical and scientific knowledge around our treatments. An IIS may be a clinical, pre-clinical, or non-clinical study for which Acadia provides funding, drug product, or both. 

Acadia is currently accepting proposals for clinical, pre-clinical and non-clinical studies in Rett syndrome.

We support programs that will: 

  • Contribute knowledge to the medical and scientific community
  • Address unmet needs 
  • Be communicated in an appropriate scientific forum, including peer-reviewed publications

Examples of appropriate requestors of IIS support include, but are not limited to: 

  • Healthcare providers 
  • Members of the scientific community 
  • Healthcare institutions 
  • Colleges and universities 
  • Government research institutions 

To submit a study proposal, please register and complete an online application here.
