Research Membership

Membership at WE-SPARK Health Institute is important to help grow health research capacity across our region. Core membership is a distinction reserved for those people with a primary affiliation at one of our four partner institutions. However, we welcome anyone interested in health research to become engaged in our growing research culture as Affiliate, Community or Ambassador members.
