ZRS members are known as One Percenters (1%ers), because we are committed to being among the one percent of people likely to survive a global zombie outbreak. Though we represent diverse backgrounds, interests and theories, we are unified in our support of the Zombie Research Society’s three foundational principles:
- A zombie is a relentlessly aggressive human or reanimated human corpse driven by a biological infection.
- The zombie pandemic is coming. It’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when.
- Enthusiastic debate about zombies is essential to the survival of the human race.

The ZRS Management Team is charged with overseeing all aspects of the society’s day to day operations. Because we are an all-volunteer organization, the Society is always looking for new contributors to our important work.
