Levels of Membership:

1) Investigator Membership

Membership is open to individual scientists from life sciences fields, clinicians, professionals involved in research and development from academia, contract research organisations and governments.

2) Trainee Membership

Pre doctorate, doctorate, post doctorate to early stage investigator from life sciences, clinical and research fields. To become eligible for Trainee Membership, please provide proof of your Trainee status along with your application.

3) Organisational (including Government Departments) Membership

Membership is held by the company or government department rather than individuals. The only requirement placed on associated Industrial/Government Department membership is that the company/department can demonstrate a genuine interest and activity in Emerging and Zoonotic Infections. The rationale behind this criteria is to encourage industrial involvement in the early stage activities of EZI research, to develop a cross sector national network.
