Protocol Initiation Form (PIF)

The Protocol Initiation Form (PIF) alerts the SRC Administration office that a new research project is in the works. The PIF is used to create an administrative study file for budget and contract information. This administrative file will have a specific Study Number which is a unique identifier that will remain with the study throughout it's history within the institution.

If you have questions about completing the PIF, please contact the Research Center at 206-215-3100.

When the PIF is complete, please email the finalized form to
