Affiliate Members University-based Principal Investigators whose research is partly concerned with stem cell biology and who have collaborations with SCI members or associate members. In addition to established researchers, affiliate status is open to junior investigators with independent funding who have emerging programmes in stem cell biology or translation. Affiliate Members have access for collaborative studies to SCI core platforms that are not available in their host department/ institute. Affiliate Members are eligible to be a partner in seed-funding projects and to be supervisors or co-supervisors on the 4-year PhD programme. Affiliate Members may also apply to enroll students in the PhD Programme discussion series which provides critical exposure to a broad range of mammalian stem cell biology. Affiliate Members and their lab members are encouraged to participate in most seminars and networking activities of SCI.
