IXA Membership Requirements

The principal aim of the IXA is to provide a forum for those with a special interest in xenotransplantation. Applications for all membership categories require sponsorship by a full member of the IXA in good standing, and applications for Junior membership require a letter of support from the candidate’s supervisor.

There are three categories of membership: Full Members, Associate Members, and Junior Members.

  • Full members are investigators in the broad field of xenotransplantation who have contributed by their work to the advancement of knowledge in the field. Full Members are eligible to vote at the Business Meetings of the Association and to be an Officer or Councilor of the Association. Membership includes a reduced subscription fee to the IXA’s official journal Xenotransplantation. Full Members must be Members of TTS.

  • Associate members are persons with an interest in xenotransplantation but who are not Members of TTS. This might include, for example, veterinarians or microbiologists who do not have a primary interest in transplantation. Associate members have no voting rights and are ineligible to be an Officer or Councilor of the Association. Membership includes a reduced subscription fee to the IXA’s official journal Xenotransplantation. Members of TTS are ineligible for Associate Membership of IXA.

  • Honorary members are persons with an interest in xenotransplantation who are in clinical or research training posts. Junior members have no voting rights and are ineligible to be an Officer or Councilor of the Association. Membership of TTS is not required for Junior Membership of IXA.
