Take the 2 minute Zipline Online Help Library feedback survey to help us improve Zipline support.

The Principal Investigator (PI) can assign a proxy who can perform all actions normally restricted to the PI on a study, such as submitting the application to HSD, submitting modifications and continuing review, and copying a previously created study. A proxy receives e-mail notifications from the IRB system whenever the PI and primary contact receive them.

A proxy must be a member of the study team. For more information on adding someone to the study team, see Updating the Study Team.

The PI retains the ability to perform all PI actions and can add or remove the proxy role at any time.
