Becoming a Principal Investigator
A principal investigator (PI) is an individual designated by the university as having the appropriate level of authority and responsibility for the proper conduct of research. The Office of Research manages this process for the university.
Ohio State’s research and creative expression community relies on a variety of funders including federal agencies, private foundations, state agencies and corporations to support efforts to discover new knowledge and innovations.
At Ohio State, undergraduate, graduate and professional students are encouraged to take part in the process of discovery that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of the classroom and have access to compelling educational opportunities.
