Faculty

Membership in the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute at IU School of Medicine is organized into categories of investigators: primary, clinical, associate and affiliate. All members are expected to participate in the clinical, research and education programs of the institute. Other responsibilities of members include submission as PI/co-PI of neuroscience-related grant; 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 Stark Neurosciences Research Institute Research Groups; and attendance at Stark Neurosciences Research Institute seminars and Neuroscience Center Grand Rounds. Members are expected to serve on various Stark Neurosciences Research Institute committees when called upon; recognize the support of Stark Neurosciences Research Institute on publications; attend Stark Neurosciences Research Institute Town Hall meetings; serve on Medical Neuroscience thesis committees when called upon; attend meetings of relevant Stark Neurosciences Research Institute Research Groups; support the educational and philanthropic mission of Stark Neurosciences Research Institute ; and solicit other Stark Neurosciences Research Institute members to nominate others for membership.

Primary Members

Primary investigator status requires a full time, tenure-track appointment at Indiana University School of Medicine (includes clinical faculty); active status as a Principal Investigator or Co-Investigator on a neuroscience-related research grant, contract or clinical trial; and publishing experience on neuroscience-related research. Primary members are reviewed annually by the Stark Neurosciences Research Institute Executive Committee, and each primary member has three years after losing grant funding to renew funding. After three years, status will change to inactive.  In addition, full members must have published within the last three years or membership status will change to inactive.
