FDA Form 1571 has been updated. Use this new form for all future IND submissions to the FDA.  Refer to this training document to walk you through the changes. 

All University of Rochester investigators are required to complete the IND or IDE training before submitting an IND or IDE application (respectively) to the FDA. Training is optional (but strongly recommended) for members of the study team who will be working on FDA-related aspects of the study.

These online courses are available in MyPath for University of Rochester staff and faculty. The same training is available through separate links for the scientific public.  Rochester students should request access to this training by contacting the Office of Regulatory Support.

In MyPath use the search bar feature and the keywords "Investigational New Drug" for the IND course and "Investigational Device Exemption" for the IDE course.
