Application for membership can be self-initiated or proposed by any existing DRC member and will be considered by the DRC Executive Committee. Criteria for inclusion include the following:
- Concurrence of the candidate’s research program with DRC programs and goals.
- Extramural funding (with priority given to NIH funding).
- Evidence that the candidate will enhance DRC goals by interacting with DRC members and by contributing to and benefiting from DRC activities (Enrichment Program, Cores, and P & F).
DRC membership is reviewed annually by The Program Directors. Members that no longer fit the criteria above will be reviewed by the DRC Executive Committee and considered for removal.
