Principal Investigator 101

Principal Investigator 101 (PI 101) provides a foundational training specifically focused on operational and regulatory elements necessary for the ethical conduct of clinical research. The course highlights many of the processes needed to initiate, manage and close-out a study at the University of Kentucky and is recommended for principal investigators, sub-investigators, clinical research coordinators, clinical research associates, and other study staff members who function in these capacities. 

PI 101 was developed through collaboration by the Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS), Markey Cancer Center (MCC) and the Office of Research Integrity (ORI).
