The two principal requirements that have been established for membership in the YRDRCC are that individuals:

  • Devote a proportion of their research effort to projects relevant to the core missions of the Center in investigation of rheumatic diseases; and
  • Exhibit a record of and/or document specific intentions for productive interdisciplinary collaboration with other YRDRCC members. Membership is given upon receipt of a completed membership application describing the individual’s research focus, and plans for collaboration with other YRDRCC members.

Membership requires Executive Committee approval and is renewable every two years. In addition, you are required to submit a one-page annual research summary to the Center to share your latest published discoveries with the research community.
