External Research Program

The Medtronic External Research Program supports a global network of investigator - initiated research projects in the spirit of advancing medical and scientific knowledge. Focusing on the discovery, development and cultivation of cutting - edge therapies and diagnostics, the program fosters investigative research with the goal of improving the quality of patient care and clinical outcomes.

Medtronic evaluates each external research program submission for, among other factors, scientific merit, strategic interest, and degree of new scientific and clinical evidence. The investigator is responsible for conducting the study and assuring the validity of the study data. The investigator, and/or investigator’s institution, also assumes the roles and responsibilities of the study sponsor, including compliance of all regulatory requirements. Medtronic receives many requests for support of external research program proposals and as a result, not all submissions can be supported.
