Sobi awards research support on a highly competitive basis. Proposals will be reviewed by an ISS Evaluation Committee (ISS EC) consisting of Sobi personnel from medical affairs, research and development, biostatistics, and safety with ad hoc personnel as appropriate. In order to be approved for support by Sobi ISS EC, a study must meet all of the following requirements:
In addition to the scientific evaluation described above, the Sobi ISS EC will also ensure that requested funds are justified and reasonable and are commensurate with fair market value and that submitting investigators are eligible to conduct the proposed research.
Sobi’s local medical representative will represent the study proposal to the Sobi ISS EC. Therefore, it is highly recommended that investigators contact their local Sobi Medical Science Liaison (MSL) or local Medical Director prior to submitting a study proposal to address any questions and to ensure the proposal and associated budget are complete and compliant. Investigators who do not know who their local Sobi contact is should email for assistance.
