The new Professional Membership level is open to researchers, academics, and individuals whose companies are too wide-ranging to justify a full corporate membership but who want to engage in the association. Students can also join at this level.

“Connecting with the scientific community is a huge priority. We saw a growing need for a membership level for individuals who want to engage with the prebiotic community,” stated Monheit.
