The Office of Regulatory Support (ORS) can provide templates for many of the FDA submissions during the lifetime of an Investigational New Drug (IND) or Investigational Device Exemption (IDE).

Contact the Research Help Desk if you need assistance with drafting communications to the FDA or for templates for any of the following items:

Investigational New Drug (IND) Applications

  • Request for IND Exemption
  • Pre-IND meeting request and briefing package
  • IND Application
  • IND Annual Report
  • IND Withdrawal
  • IND Letter of Cross-Reference/Letter of Authorization
  • Cover Letters
  • Investigator Brochures

Investigational Device Exemptions (IDE) Applications

  • Cover Letter
  • Pre-Submission meeting request and briefing package
  • IDE Application
  • IDE Progress Report
  • Final Reports

In addition to these templates specific to submitting the IND and IDE applications to the FDA, there are many templates that are central to conducting clinical research, including for informed consent and several types of study protocols which can be found at the OHSP RSRB webpage.
