The PRIM&R community provides support, resources, and connections with colleagues with similar experiences and who face similar challenges.

Annual membership pays for itself: members save time by consulting with colleagues in our network and utilizing tools and resources available to you through the online Knowledge Center. They save money by taking advantage of a range of discounts on educational programs, relevant journals and publications, certification exam fees, and continuing education credits.

PRIM&R’s diverse and supportive membership community is composed of individuals from more than 1,000 institutions located in more than 40 countries. Our members include those involved in every aspect of biomedical, behavioral, and social science research, and come from public and private institutions, the federal government, academia, and industry. Members represent a host of professions, including: human research protection program and IACUC staff, IRB and IACUC members, administrators, and chairs, researchers, institutional officials, research subjects and their advocates, ethicitsts, policy makers, and more.

If you have any interest or involvement in the research ethics world, PRIM&R membership can help you learn, grow, and connect with others who are advancing ethical research.
