Become a MSGERC Member!

In the new era of translational medicine, and continuing medical education, The Mycoses Study Group Education and Research Consortium (MSGERC) has emerged as a non-profit education, scientific and charitable organization providing seamless leadership to stakeholders seeking to diagnose, prevent, treat and cure invasive fungal infections.

The consortium of MSG investigators has a long-standing reputation, commencing in 1978 as premier leaders in clinical mycology.  After multi-decades as an NIH-sponsored research group, the MSGERC Steering Committee voted to restructure the group as a non-profit organization and to solicit formal memberships.  You are receiving this exclusive invitation to help MSGERC finalize this process. I am personally inviting you to extend the current work and mission of MSGERC through your official membership. 

Dues are $100 per member ($75 for current ID Fellows), and those signing up by April 30, 2016 will be classified as MSGERC Founding Members.  The Steering Committee and Education Committee will continue as slated; however, other committees are evolving.  Since this is our inaugural membership year, anyone becoming a Founding Member by April 30 will be eligible to run for the new MSGERC Board of Directors.  The first MSGERC slate of candidates will be vetted and approved by the Steering Committee in early May, and members will elect the first MSGERC Board of Directors by mid-July.

Lastly, MSGERC will be holding its Biannual Meeting from September 24-28 in Big Sky, Montana, USA and members are eligible for a reduced registration rate. 

Official member benefits include:

        • Recognition as a MSGERC member and the historic value of the group
        • Identification as a key opinion leader in your mycology specialization
        • Opportunities to serve as a subcontractor on MSGERC CME or research consultations
        • Recognition as a preferred investigator for mycology studies and clinical trials
        • Eligibility to vote on important MSGERC matters that are brought forth to the membership
        • Eligibility to run for the MSGERC Board of Directors and hold a leadership position helping to shape the future strategy, goals and mission of our organization (except for Industry Members)
        • Eligibility to serve as a leader on one of MSGERC’s standing committees (except for Industry Members)
        • Online, searchable Membership Directory and self-management of full profile

We are proud of the legacy of the MSG and are encouraged by our continued status within our industry and among government colleagues.  You will now help us move into the next phase of the MSGERC!  Together, we will champion evidence-based diagnoses, prevention, treatment and management of invasive fungal infections through Education, Research and Scholarship.
