Investigator Role

How do I become an investigator for a research study you may be asking? It is quite easy! And the Office of Research is here to assist you.

An investigator by definition is an individual who conducts a clinical investigation. This could be a physician, nurse, pharmacist, anyone who is using a test article with a human subject and is helping to contribute to generalizable knowledge. You can serve as either a Principal Investigator (the lead investigator at the site) or a Sub-Investigator.

How does a research study idea get started? It may happen in a variety of ways.

  1. You hear about an exciting new drug or device being studied
  2. A drug or device company contacts you to see if you want to participate in a study
  3. Our office contacts you about an exciting new study
