Can a principal investigator be changed?
|Can a principal investigator be changed?|
Yes. The Principal Investigator serves at the discretion of the institution, and certain events may necessitate a change in Principal Investigator. For example, if the Principal Investigator is departing the institution, but the grant is remaining, the institution would need to designate a new PI. The terms of the sponsored award will typically require prior written approval from the sponsor for a change in Principal Investigator.
