Research Affiliates are investigators who have both interest and potential to contribute to the mission of CPH-NEW, regardless of their home institution. Potential collaboration may take the form of research grant-writing related to the CPH-NEW mission, participation in already funded projects (in-kind), co-authorship of manuscripts with CPH-NEW investigators, contributions to educational and outreach activities, or serving as external advisors to graduate students who work on Center projects. Research Affiliates have access to CPH-NEW instruments and other materials and may participate in Center meetings and research retreats.
