Criteria for Membership

The Administrative Core has the responsibility for establishing criteria for center membership. These criteria will be established by the Internal Advisory Committee and reviewed on a yearly basis, as will the membership roster. The Core Center leadership has determined that center membership should meet the following criteria:

Full Center Membership Guidelines

  • Faculty position at a regional Kansas City academic or research institution
  • Desire to promote the mission of the Kansas PKD Research and Translation Core Center
  • PKD research project that will require the use of one or more of the biomedical research cores
  • PKD research interest in at least one of the areas of research emphasis
  • Interest in collaborating with other PKD Core Center members
  • PKD research grant as PI or Co-I in the past 3 years and ongoing effort to continue PKD grant funding
  • Publication in the PKD field and desire to continue research on PKD, or currently active research project in the PKD field that has promise of eventual publication.
  • Interest in contributing to the Educational Enrichment Program of the Core Center

Affiliate membership would apply to investigators who have a beginning interest in PKD research and have the potential to become a full center member. The important criterion for affiliate membership is that a researcher should have a collaboration with a full member, but it is not necessary to have PKD funding or PKD publications yet. The following are the criteria for affiliate center membership:

Affiliate Center Membership Guidelines
