How to ApplyCurrent Members

 

The purpose of the UCSF-NORC will be to promote and grow research in obesity, nutrition, and metabolism at UCSF and throughout northern California. This will be realized by:

  • Maintaining, improving, and promoting the interactions and collaborations of researchers in the field with each other and with those outside the field.

  • Supporting the maintenance and evolution of state-of-the-art Research Cores to meet the needs of obesity, nutrition, and metabolism research.

  • Facilitating the development of new research directions and the entry of new researchers into the field via Pilot & Feasibility opportunities.

  • Enriching the NORC research community through pertinent educational forums and other venues that support the development and maintenance of research interactions.

  • Integrating administrative support to ensure that the infrastructure meets the needs of the local obesity, nutrition and metabolism research community.

Application for membership can be self-initiated or proposed by any existing NORC member and will be considered by the NORC Executive Committee. Criteria for inclusion include the following:

  • Concurrence of the candidate’s research program with NORC programs and goals.

  • Extramural funding (with priority given to NIH funding).

  • Evidence that the candidate will enhance NORC goals by interacting with NORC members and by contributing to and benefiting from NORC activities (Enrichment Program, Cores, and P & F).

NORC membership is reviewed annually by The Program Directors. Members that no longer fit the criteria above will be reviewed by the NORC Executive Committee and considered for removal.
