How To Become A BCM-IDDRC Investigator

The IDDRC at BCM supports the research of BCM investigators through the IDDRC Cores which concentrate expertise being accessible to investigators who would otherwise have to find ways to import these technologies and develop these skills in their own labs (See “About Us” and “Cores”). The IDDRC is thus an impressive venue for facilitating research in a cost-efficient way.

If you want to JOIN the group of BCM-IDDRC investigators and get privileged access to the BCM-IDDRC cores, you need to write the BCM-IDDRC Director, Dr. Zoghbi with the following*:

  • Title of project
  • Source of support
  • Period of support
  • Brief description of project
  • Relevance of the project to the IDDRC mission
  • Core Units to be accessed

* Please send your application to Jacquelyn Bridgeman.
