Research Support at SIS Bio-Skills Labs

Each month, conducting Bio-Skills Labs requires SIS to temporarily outfit a lab with imaging equipment, staff it with knowledgeable techs, and bring in cadaveric specimens for expert instructors to teach physicians interventional pain techniques.

The Society now has a process in place for members to formally request access to the specimens and imaging tools for research projects. You will either be invoiced for the additional costs associated with the research activities or receive an SIS onsite research grant valued at those additional costs. Click here to download the application form for more details.

View our upcoming event schedule and take advantage of this SIS member benefit when the next SIS Bio-Skills Lab is near you.


Collection of data for the purposes of personal research at SIS bio-skills labs entails the use of SIS resources and as such, requires an application process with evaluation by the Education Division and Research Division.
  • Principal investigator must be an SIS member.
  • Multiple permissions may be pursued/awarded per year.
  • Research activities may not interfere with any aspect of the activity’s implementation.
  • The investigator indemnifies the Spine Intervention Society from any and all liability related to the project.

Review Process
A formal application and research proposal will be required for review by both the Education and Research Division leadership. If warranted, the application and research proposal may be reviewed by the full divisions or Board of Directors. If the request is approved, staff and the course director will implement the logistics of incorporating the research activity into the schedule of the bio-skills lab.

Requests Incurring Direct Costs
The investigator either will be invoiced for the additional costs associated with the research activities or receive an SIS ‘onsite research grant’ valued at those additional costs.

SIS must be cited as the source of research support in all publications and presentations resulting from the project. The Spine Intervention Society's name will only be used in the methodology description of the study to acknowledge the granting of access to SIS resources. A copy of all publications and presentations must be sent to SIS.
