Bio-ARROW - SmartForm - Overview
The term Principal Investigator (PI) identifies the individual who is responsible for a research project. Each protocol can have only one PI.
The IBC defines a PI for biological safety protocols as University of Wisconsin-Madison tenure-track faculty. Circumstances may occur where a non-tenure-track researcher or researcher from an external agency may have need to request PI status for the purposes of the biological safety protocol.
Information on PI eligibility and a PI Request form can be found in the UW-Madison IBC Policy 011 IBC-POL-011.
