Membership Criteria

There are two categories of membership – full and associate member:

  • A full member must be funded by federal research grants (NIH, NSF, Veterans Administration Research Award) on a topic related to the primary UMCGR interest in GI biology or disease. Investigators interested in liver research are welcome. 
  • Associate members include recipients of pilot & feasibility awards, clinicians with industry or foundation funded research projects relevant to UMCGR research themes, and unfunded junior investigators with a faculty appointment affiliated with a Center investigator and working in a Center-related field.  Member status permits access to all Center resources and activities.

How to Apply

University of Michigan faculty may apply for membership status by submitting a CV, description of research and its Center relevance, and a funding report. Applications will be reviewed by the UMCGR Executive Committee.

Please email application materials to UMCGR-info@umich.edu, with “Membership Application” in the subject line.
