The Investigational Drug Service (IDS) is an integral part of the research process at Emory University. Since January 1, 2008, University policy has required that investigators who conduct drug studies use IDS for the management and dispensing of research drugs. The policy applies to all investigational drugs and drugs provided free of charge and used in clinical trials.
