Full Member:

To obtain full membership status in the Neuroscience Research Institute (NRI), an OSU faculty member must have as her/his Tenure Initiating Unit one of the Departments within the Neurological Institute (NI): Neuroscience, Neurology, Neurological Surgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Psychiatry and Behavioral Health. Alternatively, a full member may be an investigator who makes significant contributions to neuro research as determined by the NRI leadership. Significant contributions could be serving as a PI of a national or investigator-initiated clinical research study, being an essential member of a neuro-focused team project, or being an essential contributor to authoring high-impact, neuro-focused manuscripts. Full membership benefits are better realized by active participation in program meetings, research seminars, work collaborations, and making connections with NRI administration for specific service requests.


Associate Member:

To be an Associate Member of the OSU NRI, a faculty member must be actively seeking to develop or significantly contribute to neuroscience-focused research. The NRI will notify associate members of research and other opportunities. In turn, it is expected that associate members will actively participate in NRI-sponsored educational events and take advantage of the resources and services of the NRI. It is anticipated that membership will further broaden and promote collaboration for significant contributions to the neurosciences.

Application Procedure
