PERFORM Researcher Membership

PERFORM's researcher members and specialists in health and disease prevention play an important role in cultivating interdisciplinary and collaborative research that creates links between a variety of traditional and non-traditional disciplines in an effort to improve health across the population. We strive to advance knowledge and train future generations of researchers. In addition to fostering multidisciplinary collaborations, we also teach for tomorrow in generating training opportunities for the next generation of health-care professionals and practitioners. In support of this endeavour, we promote research knowledge transfer by hosting research talks and an annual international conference.

The research infrastructure at the PERFORM Centre is designed to generate and support multidisciplinary studies where researchers can investigate many aspects of the promotion of better health through prevention in innovative ways.

The membership structure at PERFORM is intended to accommodate a wide range of research interests and foster a culture of collegiality, innovation and excellence in research development, community engagement and educational opportunities.

Membership is renewable every three years. At the end of their mandate, PERFORM researcher members will be expected to apply for membership renewal for ratification by the Scientific Director.
