There are two categories of Cancer Center Members: Full and Associate.
- Full members have access to all the Cancer Center Resources, including subsidies for the Shared Resources (laboratory-based, biostatistics, Office for Clinical Research), and the ability to apply for Pilot Project Funds.
- Associate members have the same benefits as Full Members except they do not receive a subsidy at the Shared Resources. All Members are encouraged to participate in Cancer Center activities, including research retreats, and receive all the appropriate communications.
As a member, you will be expected to collaborate with other investigators, participate in planning programs, and be an active member in your research program. It is expected that you will help with the mentorship of junior investigators and when possible assist other cancer center investigators.
