The Harvard Catalyst IND/IDE Consulting Service, composed of volunteer Investigational New Drug (IND) and Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) regulatory experts from the Harvard academic, medical, and hospital communities, offers expertise, resources, and shared experiences to assist Sponsor-Investigators in meeting regulatory requirements for their ongoing and/or new clinical and translational projects. The IND/IDE Consulting Service aims to help increase regulatory compliance and further development of innovative drugs, biologics, and medical devices with the support of Harvard Catalyst resources.
The IND/IDE Consulting Service focuses on providing assistance to researchers during the early stages of research development and maintenance of their INDs and IDEs. Please note that requests from eligible investigators from Partners, Boston Children's Hospital, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute will be redirected to their institution's designated IND contact. Upon submission of request for consultation, the affiliated hospital Institutional Review Board (IRB) will be notified of the investigator's request for consultation and the final decision regarding INDs and IDEs is with the reviewing IRB.
