Honorary Member

This membership category is intended for persons having an outstanding performance supporting diverse aspects of the Cell Biology field.

The acceptance of active and adjunct members will be the prerogative of the SBCCh Board. The incorporation of honorary members will be decided by agreement in a General Assembly.

The Associate and honorary members will not have any obligation with the SBCCh, therefore they will not pay dues or be eligible for positions in it. They will have a voice right in the General Assemblies, and will be periodically informed of the institution’s progress and will have the right to attend its public events.

Post-doctoral fellows may request their incorporation as active members after two years as adjunct members.
