To define the minimum requirements for an individual to hold principal investigator (PI) status for a UW–Madison animal care and use protocol. Principal investigator status carries final responsibility for any and all activities related to the work carried out under the protocol. This includes, but is not limited to, the completion of annual continuing reviews, the submission of renewals and amendments, and ultimate responsibility for the actions and safety of all personnel who use and care for animals in research, teaching, and outreach activities under an approved protocol. Principal investigator designation on a UW–Madison animal care and use protocol does not ensure or imply any guarantee of principal investigator status in any other UW–Madison context, office or laboratory space, personnel and fiscal management, or another department, school, college, or unit support, including employment.
