PD/PI: When an individual has full responsibility & authority for the project.
Multiple PI and Co-PI: Some sponsors use the term Co-PI or Multiple PI to indicate the role has equal responsibility and authority as the lead PI (NIH uses the term Multiple PI, and NSF uses the term Co-PI). While other sponsors use the term to represent that the individual has more authority than a co-investigator but not equal authority as the PI/PD (USDA). Some sponsors use the term to represent an alternative title for a non-lead PI on a multi-PI project. Not all sponsors use this role.
Co-investigators or Co-I: This title is used to indicate the individual makes significant contributions, but does not have overall responsibility and authority for the project. They are NOT considered PD/PIs.
Application PI: This is a SAGE role type on the PI & Personnel page, when PI on sponsor application differs from the UW PI on the eGC1.
