Anyone interested in the wider field of research on DNA Repair can submit an application for membership. The decision on acceptance rests with the board of directors. Current membership fees are:

  • 35.- Euro per year
  • 15.- Euro per year for students / doctoral students
  • 60.- Euro per year for legal person or bodies (e.g. a company)

A valid membership entitles to a discount at the DGDR workshops. The membership fees are collected via a direct debiting scheme once yearly in order to keep costs low and administrative work at a minimum.

Professor Phillip C. Hanawalt, Stanford University, USA, was awarded an honorary membership at the 2002 Workshop in Karlsruhe for his trend setting work and at the 2006 Workshop in Hamburg, Professor Errol C. Friedberg, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, USA was similarly honored acknowledging his formative work. In 2008 at the Meeting in Berlin, Yosef Shiloh was made an honorary member of the society in appreciation of his work on the human DNA repair disorder, Ataxia telangiectasia and the identification of the underlying gene, ATM, a central player in the cellular DNA damage response.
