DEFINITION OF INVESTIGATORS
"Investigators" at EVMS include all Key Personnel (Principal Investigator (PI), Project Director and any other person identified as senior/key personnel) listed in a grant application, contract, progress or other report, and any other individuals, regardless of title or position, who have responsibility over the design, conduct, or reporting of research or a sponsored project, which may include research assistants, post-docs, fellows, students, collaborators or consultants.
When determining which individuals should be considered Investigators on a research/sponsored project, the PI should consider roles, not titles, of individuals and the degree of independence given, or oversight provided, to individuals who perform research/sponsored project functions.
