Members

The GC-CPEH has three categories of membership: Full Member, Associate Member, and Affiliate Member.
  • Full Member members are faculty engaged in Center activities with environmental health-relevant research programs and peer-reviewed extramural research.
  • Associate Members are faculty engaged in Center activities with environmental health-relevant research programs, but without current peer-reviewed research funding. This category of membership is designed to engage junior faculty and promote career development. By participating in the Center’s activities, it is expected that Associate Members will become Full Members.
  • Affiliate Members are faculty conducting environmental health-relevant research at institutions other than the parent institutions of the P30. This category allows the GC-CPEH to engage with investigators at institutions across the expansive Texas Medical Center.
