After carrying out a feasibility assessment by checking that the study meets with the initial approval of potential contributors, the CI/PI should contact the ICHT Clinical Division's research manager with a summary of the findings. The Divisional research manager will decide how to proceed with the study:

  • Deemed as feasible – continue to study work-up
  • Inconclusive – the Clinical Division may ask the CI/PI for further information or to re-submit the study with some changes
  • Deemed as unfeasible – the proposal is rejected.
