The PGRN welcomes individuals, groups, or teams in pharmacogenetics, human genetics, or pharmacology and related fields to apply for affiliate membership.
Benefits of Affiliate Membership
Affiliate members will be invited to participate in selected scientific network activities, for example, on-line seminars and focused meetings to deal with current, cutting edge topics in pharmacogenomics. This is a way for the pharmacogenetics/pharmacogenomics community to engage in a bi-directional dialogue with the PGRN membership.
Criteria for Affiliate Membership
- Participate in a multidisciplinary research environment or group;
- Have evidence of an established research program;
- Contribute to the network (e.g., depositing genotype/phenotype data into PharmGKB, submitting critical papers, and/or possibly pathways or VIP gene pages);
- Follow the precepts of the PGRN Mission Statement.
Examples of Affiliates
Investigators participating in PGRN projects and PharmGKB consortia
Process to apply for consideration for Affiliate Membership
