Is there a minimum qualification for a Principal Investigator?

PCORI does not have minimum qualifications for the PI. However, please keep in mind the following factors when determining whether your project team has the right experience and capabilities:

  • Are the investigators appropriately trained and suited to carry out the planned implementation project?
  • Is the work proposed appropriate to PI’s experience level?
  • If the investigator does not have patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR) and/or implementation experience, are there appropriate collaborative arrangements with experts in PCOR and/or D&I?
  • Does the study team have complementary and integrated expertise?
  • Are the team’s leadership approach, governance, and organizational structure appropriate for the project?
