Investigators

Stark Neurosciences Research Institute investigators at Indiana University School of Medicine participate in the clinical, research and education programs of the institute. Investigators accepted into membership are divided into two categories: primary and affiliate.

Primary membership is available to any full-time faculty member at Indiana University actively publishing and conducting neuroscience-related research. Affiliate membership is available to any Indiana University faculty member, including clinical track faculty, without independent neuroscience-related grant funding or publications as well as faculty from other universities with neuroscience-related research and/or grant funding.

Responsibilities of members include: submission as a principal investigator or co-principal investigator of neuroscience-related grants; presentation of data at internal and external scientific meetings; publication as contributing author on peer-reviewed articles and book chapters; participation in collaborative efforts via grants, publications and membership in one of the institute's eight Research Focus Groups; attendance at the Neuroscience Research Seminar Series; and solicitation of investigators for membership.
