The core activities of The Biomarkers Consortium are funded through contributions from members representing the private sector. Corporations, firms, advocacy groups and other non-profit organizations, associations and philanthropic organizations that wish to support biomarker development are eligible to become contributing members.
Membership Levels: Contributing membership is offered at several levels based on organization type and, if applicable, research and development budgets. Membership extends 12 months from the date a signed membership agreement is received by the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health. Contribution levels are based on annual research and development spending. Minimum levels will be adjusted every two years as necessary, depending on consortium membership and projected operational budgets, and will be subject to approval by the Consortium executive committee.
The Biomarkers Consortium members represent both for-profit companies and non-profit organizations. For-profit contributing members pay dues (either annually or every three years) which are based upon the organization’s research and development budget.
All contributing members representing the non-profit sector pay dues in the amount of $5,000 annually (or $13,500 every three years).
