Welcome to the Ionis Research Grants Portal!

This platform supports the submission, review, and management of grant requests for Investigator Initiated Research (IIR).

IIR is defined as research conceived, initiated, and conducted independently of Ionis. An external investigator serves as the sponsor, and with their institution, is wholly responsible for the design, implementation, conduct of the research, data collection, data interpretation, publication, and all compliance, quality, and regulatory requirements.

IIR proposals are evaluated on scientific merit, alignment with our research areas of interest, and availability of resources. Submission of a proposal does not guarantee Ionis' support.

Research Areas of Interest
