Course Description

Investigator Initiated Trials (IITs), also referred to as Sponsor-Investigator (SI) Trials are increasing in popularity. A Sponsor-Investigator is anyone who functions as the Clinical Investigator (CI) of a given study and who also holds the investigational marketing application, i.e., the IND or IDE. How does the CI ensure compliance to both the investigator and sponsor responsibilities? This web seminar will present the responsibilities, discuss risk, and provide suggestions for compliance.
