Depending on the nature of the proposed study, a collaborative and multidisciplinary team may be required. PCORI permits applicants to name a maximum of two PIs within an application. The PIs may be from the same or different institutions. Each PI is accountable and responsible for the conduct of the award and ensuring all awarded milestones, deliverables, and reports are completed in accordance with the award terms and conditions.
If proposing a dual-PI application, you must designate one as the Contact PI. The Contact PI must be
employed by the applicant institution and listed first within the application. Although PCORI will
recognize both PIs, the Contact PI is responsible for submitting the application and for communications
between the PIs and PCORI, including coordinating meetings with PCORI staff.
Please be sure to read the Application Guidelines for your PFA for other requirements related to dual-PI applications.
