What is Investigator Databank?

The Investigator Databank is a global collaboration between Janssen, Lilly, Merck, Pfizer and Novartis (with more companies to come) to share investigator information that each company has on file with one another. Investigator Databank aims to reduce administrative burden for investigators and to increase visibility of qualified investigators to research sponsors.

“Helps the busy sites like us to use a centralized data bank to timely update the site information. I wish other pharmaceutical companies will also support this effort.”

How can the Investigator Databank benefit Investigators?

  • Decreases administrative burden for investigators.
  • Expands investigator access to clinical research opportunities.
  • Allows investigators to view, edit, and comment on their profile via www.investigatordatabank.org website.

How can I get started?

As a first step, you can search to see if any of the Investigator Databank industry members or DrugDev.org have a record of you or your site on file. If found, all you need to do is “opt-in” to start sharing with the Investigator Databank and be taken to your profile where you can view, edit, and comment on information from industry member’s clinical trial management systems.

There is no charge to investigators or their institutions to opt-in to the Investigator Databank and to create a profile. Industry member companies share the financial support for development and access to the Databank.
