Becoming an NCCR associated partner

Any professor, group leader or senior researcher affiliated to a Swiss research institute or hospital can request to be an associated partner of the NCCR Microbiomes.

Becoming an NCCR associated partner enables principal investigators to join the vibrant community of microbiome researchers in Switzerland. Moreover, associated partners have access to all NCCR activities, such as workshops, summer schools, or retreats. Generally, associated partners are not financially supported by the NCCR; however, if it is beneficial for the operation of the NCCR as a whole, they can receive financial support.
