STAR - Investigators

Work With Us

All investigators must have a STAR PI sponsor for their concept sheet submission. The STAR PI sponsor must review and approve the concept sheet prior to completion of the online Concept Sheet Submission Form.

Once a concept sheet has been submitted via the online submission form, DACC staff will review the CS for completeness, assign a README# (tracking number), and assign a Principal Investigator Reviewer (PIR).

The concept sheet will then undergo review with all STAR PIs and once approved, the lead investigator will receive an approval letter.

If you have any questions or need to be linked with a STAR PI sponsor, please email
