Membership privileges include but are not limited to the following: 1) Apply for funds and support fellows in an application for pilot funds; 2) Serve on the Executive Committee; 3) Use core facilities’ technical training and consultation with higher priority; 5) Receive weekly Accelerator notifications.

There are two avenues for membership in the BMCRC: invitation from a member of the Executive Committee or application (see below).
There are five categories of membership. These are as follows:
- Member (PI on federally funded usually NIH grants or strong history of past funding publications and contributions to the field). Includes RO1 and K awardees
- Associate Member – scientist without federal funding as PI; new investigators (e.g. Assistant Prof or Instructor)
- Industry Associate
- Trainee (post-doctoral fellows, graduate students, medical fellows)
- Affiliate Member – wishes to be informed of MCRC activities
These categories were identified and defined in order to avoid any potential issues or complications with regards to membership (specifically applications that may be rejected).
To apply for membership, please send your CV and a brief cover letter to the MCRC Administrator, Sharon Tomlinson.
