The National Biomonitoring Network (NBN) is currently accepting applications from local, state and federal governmental biomonitoring laboratories integrated into the public health system. The network has been designed to accommodate a variety of backgrounds, and applications will be welcomed from laboratories with limited to extensive experience.
NBN Application Process
Apply to Join the NBN
To apply to join the NBN, fill out the form above. An APHL staff member will review the application for completeness and you will be notified if any components are missing. Applications will be assessed on a quarterly basis by a panel of three reviewers and a chairperson.
Members are welcome to petition for a new tier status at any time by submitting a new application, which will be assessed at the next quarterly review. All laboratories will be asked to renew their network membership every two years.
There is no NBN application or membership fee at this time.
NBN membership is currently only available to Tier 1, 2 and 3 laboratories. APHL is not prepared to accept Tier 4 laboratories at this time; this page will be updated when Tier 4 opens for applications. To be notified of this update, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with 'Tier 4 Application' in the subject line.
