Investigational New Drug Development

Investigational New Drug (IND) Applications for Sponsor-Investigators

IND Development Process Overview

An academic researcher may be required to submit an IND application to FDA in order to study a marketed medical product in a new (i.e. unapproved) clinical indication. An investigator is always required to hold an IND to study an unmarketed (i.e. unapproved) medical product. In both cases, the products are considered “investigational” by FDA. The vast majority of INDs on file with the FDA are for noncommercial research.
