Investigator Studies Program

The Caris Life Sciences Investigator Studies Program is open to all academic and community-based physicians and researchers worldwide who are interested in conducting their own research. Support is provided based on the scientific merit of the proposal, as well as whether it is in alignment with the published areas of interest. Submission of a proposal does not imply or guarantee approval. All proposals will be reviewed based on research merit criteria.

Caris expects that all accepted projects will result in a publication. A manuscript draft should be prepared and submitted to Caris for comment within 90 days of abstract completion. Financial and/or product support is contingent upon full execution by both parties of the research agreement.

We strongly encourage you to discuss research proposals with a Molecular Science Liaison or Research Scientist prior to submission. If you have not done so and would like to speak with an appropriate team member please email
