Benefits to membership
The Fraser Mustard Institutes for Human Development supports research, education and knowledge mobilization and exchange on the promotion of children’s health, well-being and social function. We provide a forum to support cutting edge transdisciplinary research, collaboration and knowledge exchange.
The FMIHD membership is a network of individuals involved in research, education, front-line care and policy development in human development with a goal of affecting positive change. Our membership crosses research pillars, departments, faculties and institutions.
Faculty Members of the Institute have priority access to core facilities and input into future plans for the Institute, and are eligible to apply for FMIHD funded grant competitions. Trainee Members are eligible to apply to competitive Fellowship and Studentship programs. As a member, you will receive announcements and updates on Institute-related activities and have the opportunity to connect with new colleagues and collaborative projects.
In order to accurately reflect the needs of our membership we will occasionally request that members participate in special retreats, or working groups/meetings related to our education, research or outreach program.
FACULTY MEMBERS must hold an academic appointment at the University of Toronto and be involved in research and / or education in human development. Early, mid and advanced career investigators are welcome.
IN TRAINING MEMBERS must be registered at the University of Toronto, and may include undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, residents and clinical fellows.
PROFESSIONAL and COMMUNITY MEMBERS are welcome, and will have access to the many resources available at FMIHD, including access to the largest network of researchers, educators and practitioners in early human development anywhere in the world.
