- Work as members of an interdisciplinary team within cancer research programs;
- Actively participate in Cancer Center activities (e.g. cancer seminar series, retreats and research symposiums).
Benefits of Cancer Center Membership
Active members will have access to:
- Pilot funding programs;
- Subsidies to support use of Cancer Center related core facilities;
- Opportunities to participate and present their research at center–organized activities (e.g. research symposiums, cancer seminar series, retreats).
Criteria for Membership
Membership is based on the applicants’ current cancer-related funding portfolio, recent publications that are relevant to cancer and/or are cancer focused, and that their research interests align with the direction of the Centers’ initiatives.
