Joining from the Public Sector
Partner with us:
Individual public-sector scientists (e.g., from academia, research hospitals, foundations, research institutes, NGOs, governmental organizations, etc.) may join HESI at the committee level or may be considered for election as a Trustee of the HESI Board. There are no direct costs for public participation, although in-kind contributions as described below are required. Trade associations are not eligible to join HESI.
HESI’s scientific programs currently engage scientists from nearly 150 different universities, research institutes and hospitals, government agencies, and foundations across the globe. A current list of public participants is available here.
Committee membership requires relevant technical expertise, active participation on conference calls and meetings, and a commitment to providing ongoing, intellectual input to the scientific program.
Read more about the committees on this page and contact the staff support for those committees directly to learn more.
New participation is coordinated via HESI’s scientific program management staff. Contact information for the relevant staff person for each HESI Committee is available via the HESI website or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate your program of interest, relevant expertise, and contact information.
Many public organizations choose to partner ‘entity-to-entity’ with HESI. For example, HESI and the US FDA entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to define terms for a joint commitment to research towards improved drug development and safety. Other partnership options include but are not limited to the following:
- Unrestricted contribution of funds
- Research grants
- Memoranda of Understanding
- Cooperation agreements
- Scientific research or symposia co-sponsorship
- Donation of facilities for HESI events.
