IND, IDE or EUA-related protocols policy

YCCI provides a comprehensive, centralized resource for FDA submission of Investigational New Drug (IND) applications and Investigational Device Exemptions (IDEs), with staff members and consultants with Industry experience who provide “soup to nuts” IND/IDE support.

Effective May 1, 2021, a Yale Investigator who intends to conduct an investigation/project that requires an IND, IDE or EUA must submit for review to the YCCI IND/IDE Management Office. The Office must receive IND/IDE/EUA applications either before or contemporaneously with their submission to the FDA and the Yale HRPP for IRB review, as applicable. Submissions of proposals to the HRPP requiring an IND/IDE that have not been previously reviewed or approved by the Office will be routed to the Office by the HRPP prior to IRB review and approval.
