principal investigator


Explanation:
This is the term used in the U.S. to denote the lead person responsible for a study. (My wife used to work for a university committee that enforced rules regarding use of human subjects in research.) See the link for pairings in a Google search.
I don't know the term used in the U.K.

Scientist in charge


Explanation:
The term "scientist in charge" is used in general for "ansvarig forskare" in the context of various reseach projects, grant applications, etc. Since the term "principal investigator" is a very specific term used regarding clinical trials and since there is a specific Swedish equivalent that is not used here, I agree with George Hopkins that it would be better to stay closer to the original.
