The CRON Administrative Core reviews membership applications for approval on a monthly basis. Membership statuses are reviewed annually. If you have questions about membership, please contact Claudette Harvey at or 713-798-2091.

Full Members have externally, peer-reviewed nutrition and obesity-related research funding, are actively involved in nutrition-research related to the B-NORC theme, have interacted with at least one other key B-NORC investigator, and will contribute to progress reports in a timely fashion.
