Who can be a Principal Investigator (PI)?


The Campus Administrative Manual defines who is permitted to be PI on human subjects research studies.  If someone who is not eligible to be a PI according to the policy, they must find someone willing to oversee their research as the responsible PI.  Then, the individual would need to be listed on the Research Team Form as a research team member.  

In some special cases, a person who does not meet the eligibility criteria can obtain permission as appropriate to be a PI.  Please review the CAM policy as well as the PI Departmental Approval form for more details.
