Investigator Initiated Studies

The mission at Alcon is to discover and develop innovative products that improve the quality of life by helping people see better. As such, we invite interested external parties to submit their project proposals (see areas of focus below). In order for our internal review process to run as quickly and smoothly as possible, complete the fields with as much detail as possible.* This will ensure a comprehensive and fair review by our internal experts.
