Investigational New Drug or Device Exemption

Under the University of Arizona’s Institutional Conflict of Interest Policy, sponsorship of an Investigational New Drug (“IND”) or an Investigational Device Exemption ("IDE") application by UA or UA personnel may create an Institutional Conflict of Interest. Accordingly, all IND/IDE applications must be reviewed and approved by the Executive Review Committee (“ERC”) prior to any clinical work being performed. Please submit an IND/IDE COI Worksheet to the COI Program as far in advance of your anticipated IND/IDE clinical start date as possible, to minimize the risk of delays while awaiting ERC review.  Please see the IND Flowchart or IDE Flowchart for more information about the IND and IDE processes.
