Investigator-Initiated Studies

These forms can be completed on line by clicking on the appropriate box or typing the information in the text box using Microsoft Word. The text boxes are deliberately set up with a limitation on the number of characters (and, hence, words) that can be entered. Entries should be concise and to the point. The applicant may contact members of the CRI staff for assistance at any stage in the process.

When you have completed the application, print it off, sign it, have your chair sign it if requested and send it together with the other forms requested by Campus Mail to the Clinical Research Institute, Stop 8183 or bring it to the Institute in Suite BA-101. We will contact you about the next step as quickly as possible. Most applications will be reviewed by members of the CRI staff, but some may be submitted to the Advisory Committee for their recommendations.
