CERPE Fellows & Trainees

Fellows

Fellows represent the permanent scholarly body of the CERPE and consist of current Tulane faculty members from different departments with strong expertise in reproductive health research and strong interests in global health.

Membership as a fellow does not interfere with each faculty member's primary academic role and obligations. Rather, fellows use the Center as a complementary means of achieving research, training goals, and commitments. Fellows have priority rights to use the Center's services, including computer facilities, scientific and software resources, work space, and attendance at seminars. They also receive administrative and logistical assistance in the preparation and submission of proposals.
