IfLS Associate benefits:

1. IfLS support for workshops and conferences at Southampton:  IfLS Associates are encouraged to attend IfLS conferences and events and put forward suggestions for suitable future workshops and meetings which might benefit the IfLS community.  Details of IfLS Events are on the Events page.

2. IfLS Associates are encouraged to network with IfLS Members and Affiliates and to join relevant working interdisciplinary groups within their and the IfLS sphere of interest.

3. The IfLS Website -  - is a point of contact and a projection of Life Sciences activities across the University. IfLS Associates are encouraged to submit items of note, fellowships, prizes, seminars and publications to be included on our website.

4. IfLS Associates will be placed on a mailing list so that details of relevant opportunities can be circulated.

IfLS Associate conditions:

As the IfLS is not a Faculty with a revenue stream it is very important that we document successes to support the interdisciplinary strategic vision of the University.  Documenting success creates a dynamic brand that can be utilised by colleagues as support for grant applications.  To this end we request that Associates send us brief notes on cross campus research and grant applications that can be tagged as IfLS orientated.  Please send this important information to: . We would also ask that the IfLS is acknowledged on the address line of publications where the research subject is appropriate: Institute for Life Sciences, University of Southampton, UK
