Investigator Form (IF)


The Investigator Form (IF) is used by the institution to manage potential conflicts of interest in research. Principal Investigators or their delegates must complete the Investigator Form (IF) in Sinai Central for ALL research projects.


The Investigator Form (IF) is required to be completed before the start of an IRB application in RUTH and/or GCO InfoEd application. When you begin an IRB application you will be prompted to enter the IF number or ID number that is generated from the Investigator Form (IF). The IF number is also required to be entered in the Sinai Central Project ID field of your GCO application in InfoEd.
