Becoming a member facilitates collaboration with other cancer-focused researchers throughout the Medical Center and provides access and subsidies to shared resource facilities.
Listed below are three pieces we need for your membership application to be considered by the Cancer Center Internal Advisory Board:
- Your complete CV as a Microsoft Word document.
- A one-page description of your cancer-focused research interest(s), also in MS Word, including any cancer-focused publications related to your current interests (Sample description of research interests).
- Your NIH Biosketch (current format using My NCBI) in MS Word.
We will use the above information in several ways:
- For Internal Advisory Board review of your membership application
- To aid in fostering collaboration among researchers with similar interests
- For production of our Cancer Center Scientific Report
- To update of our membership biosketch notebook
