Members

NICER Consortium relies on two types of membership: institutional members and individual members to allow for robust and meaningful participation by all those interested. Members from the fields of hematology/oncology, allergy/immunology, rheumatology, genetics, infectious disease, diagnostic immunology and more are actively being recruited. 


Institutional members have signed a "memorandum of understanding" or MOU to attest their institutional commitment of resources and pledge active participation in both the educational, research  and community facets of NICER. Institutional members designate an PI and co-I with expectations to participate in at least 70% of the monthly Steering and At-Large Committee Meetings, although additional faculty and trainees from each center are highly encouraged to participate. Institutional members have opportunities to serve in elected leadership positions, act as a lead investigator on a NICER supported research proposal and have access to expanded authorship opportunities. New institutional membership requests are reviewed by the Steering Committee and a modest administrative fee is assessed annually.

For those not in a position to join NICER at an institutional level, we welcome your participation as an individual member.  Individual members are noted as important contributors to the vibrancy and success of NICER and enjoy the benefits of access to all NICER educational activities (e.g. the monthly patient case conferences, mini-symposia), options to propose research studies in collaboration with an institutional member and authorship opportunities for significant contributions to NICER research. Individual members fee is $40 annually or $100 every 3 years.

Importantly, all members have access mentoring initiatives and to real-time communication options via the NICER listservs and chat rooms for in-the-moment expertise, feedback and support at your fingertips.
