Investigator-Initiated TrialsSummit
Collaborative, Compliant Investigator Sponsored Research
Investigator-Initiated Trials (IITs), also referred to as an investigator-initiated study (IIS) or investigator-initiated research (IIR) are often described as taking a protocol from “bench to bedside.” IITs are vital to developing new treatments and therapies. With the increasing interest in IITs globally, more biopharmaceutical companies are using IITs as a creative and cost-effective way to innovate and further improve patient safety. As organizations work to improve and expand their IIT programs, it is critical to ensure IIT proposals align with corporate objectives and also demonstrate scientific merit.
DGE inaugural Investigator-Initiated Trials Summit provides an unequaled in-depth examination of the tools that are essential for a successful, complaint IIT.

As DGE welcomes you back to in-person conferences, we assure you that every precaution will be taken to keep you safe and healthy at our events. We have set new protocols for social distancing, onsite cleansing, and vaccination guarantees, all to make sure you have the best possible experience for learning and networking with a community of your peers.

  • VACCINATION IS MANDATORY to participate in a DGE in-person event. All event staff, speakers, attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors must submit proof of vaccinated status upon first entry to the event space
  • All event staff, speakers, attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors must wear masks in all event spaces, except when speaking on stage or eating in designated socially-distanced locations
  • All participants must affirm that they are not experiencing symptoms, have not been to an area with a travel health advisory, and have not been closely exposed to anyone who was
  • All events will follow federal and local safety guidances, as well as additional regulations that may be in place for each venue
  • All seating and exhibition areas will allow for 3 feet of space between participants
  • Event staff will be constantly monitoring room capacity and density
  • New directional and distancing signage will help remind participants about social distancing while keeping foot traffic flowing smoothly
  • All event spaces will have enhanced cleaning protocols throughout your stay
  • DGE and hotel staff have been trained on rapid response if event participants begin to show symptoms of illness

We appreciate your trust and your willingness to resume in-person learning. We pledge to put your health and safety first while holding our educational conferences, and to continue to refine and improve those standards based on developing guidelines from governments and venues.
