MEG – Nominations for New Committee Members

The Molecular Epidemiology Group (MEGUK) are calling for nominations to recruit 2 new members to their committee.

MEGUK exists to promote a multi-disciplinary approach to all molecular studies of prevention and/or causes of human disease. This is not restricted to human studies but can include in vitro and in vivo models that underpin mechanisms of disease. As a member of the committee you will contribute deliverance of the MEG agenda through interaction with MEG and UKEMS, attendance to MEG committee meetings, and contribution to organisation of MEG workshops and symposia. It is expected that each committee member acts in capacity as local organiser for at least one annual MEG meeting during each term on the committee. Committee members will be appointed for four years in the first instance, and may be eligible for re-appointment for one further consecutive term of four years, subject to agreement by the continuing committee members.

To be considered for a seat on the committee you must be a UKEMS member, and be nominated for the post by 2 existing UKEMS members (nominator and a seconder). Nominees will then be elected to committee membership through an email ballot of UKEMS members. If the number of candidates is less than the number of vacancies, the sitting committee is empowered to directly appoint new committee members.

Nominations for these posts can be sent to committee chair, Dr Jill McKay (jill.mckay@northumbria.ac.uk); closing date Sept 18th.
