How to Become a member of TERMIS

Membership to TERMIS is open to individuals who are interested in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine and support the mission of the Society.

There are two (2) ways to become a TERMIS Member:
  1. Attend a TERMIS World Congress or Chapter Meeting
    By attending a TERMIS meeting, you automatically become a member or renew your membership until the end of the following year.

    Example: You attend a TERMIS Chapter Meeting in either Toronto, London, or Tokyo in 2007. You are automatically a member of the Society until December 31, 2008. If you then attend any of the Chapter meetings in 2008, you automatically remain a member until December 31, 2009, and so on.
  2. Pay the Annual Dues.
    Membership dues to TERMIS are for the fiscal year (January - December of the current year). Dues have been structured to encourage participation by students, in particular, as follows:

    • Regular Membership (annual dues: $100.00) - Any individual who does not qualify as a Student Member.
    • Student Membership (annual dues: $25.00)
      - Student: Any individual, who is engaged as a full-time graduate or undergraduate, in a university or college program and is actively involved in research in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. A copy of your student ID needs to be presented at the time of joining the Society.

      - Young Investigator: Young Investigators are defined as persons who are employed by an academic institution in the field of tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, who have been awarded their doctoral degree within the past 3 years and who are not holding an appointment as a faculty or academic staff in a university/research institute. Young investigators are required to have their advisor/supervisor send a letter as proof of the bona fide status of the young investigator.

The individuals residing within the countries that have been identified as Emerging Countries within the Continental Chapters are exempt from paying membership dues. Even though dues will not be collected, you must complete the online membership form.

Membership dues can be paid either online via the online membership application or by sending a check drawn in U.S. Funds and mailed to:
