Member Benefits and Responsibilities
Benefits of CEEH Membership:
As a CEEH Investigator, you are entitled to:
- Free or subsidized access to three state-of-the-art CEEH Facility Cores: The Functional Genomics & Proteomics Core, the Integrative Environmental Health Sciences Facility Core, and the Exposure Assessment, Biomarkers & Metabolomics Facility Core;
- Consultations and services provided by the Community Outreach and Ethics Core;
- Opportunities for mentorship and career development for young investigators through the Career Development & Mentoring Core.
- Opportunities for multidisciplinary collaborations with other CEEH members across all six Areas of Research Emphasis.
Responsibilities of CEEH Members:
In order to retain membership status, investigators must demonstrate annually that they continue to meet the basic criteria relevant to their category of membership (Core EHS Investigator or CTS Investigator). In addition, they need to have participated in CEEH sponsored events and reported on their use of Center resources and any Center-related outreach activities they have engaged in. Much of this information will be gathered through an annual electronic survey that all members are required to complete. The survey collects data on facility core use and satisfaction, outreach and education activities, publications citing the Center, and short narratives describing how the Center has helped further the investigator's research goals. Results from these annual surveys are summarized and presented to the Internal Advisory Committee. That committee uses this information to evaluate the level of participation of each Center member and identify those that may no longer be helping the Center achieve its objectives. CEEH members who fail to complete the annual survey, or who demonstrate a lack of participation in Center activities for the previous year, will be notified that their membership will be terminated unless they can provide evidence of their continued interest and planned participation in the Center.
