The primary contact role is assigned by default to the person who created the study in Zipline. The primary contact:

  • Receives all communications from the IRB (as does the PI and any PI Proxies)
  • Can be changed at any time throughout the life of the study
  • May edit the study
  • May or may not be a member of the study team
