sponsor investigatorAn individual who both initiates and conducts, alone or with others, a clinical trial and under whose immediate direction the investigational product is administered to, dispensed to, or used by a subject. The duties of a sponsor-investigator include those of a sponsor and of an investigator. The term does not include any person other than an individual—i.e., it does not include a legal entity, as in a corporation or agency.
