Membership

Membership

The strength of a matrix cancer center is directly linked to bringing talented investigators from across the University. We encourage investigators interested in cancer research collaborations to apply for Penn State Cancer Institute membership. Applicants must hold a faculty appointment at Penn State, Penn State Health, a Penn State Cancer Institute partner or an affiliate institution.

Acceptance and/or approval of a membership application is determined by the Executive Committee based on the following criteria:

  • Major laboratory, clinical or population research interest in cancer
  • Peer-reviewed cancer research funding
  • Publications on cancer-related subjects
  • Desire for active collaboration with other Cancer Institute investigators
  • Willingness to participate in Cancer Institute activities and committees

It is not mandatory for acceptance of initial membership application to meet all criteria; reasonable criteria are based on the nature of the application and determined by the Executive Committee and the respective scientific program leader. Members will be reviewed on an annual basis to determine compliance with these criteria.

Benefits of Membership

  • Eligibility for PSCI developmental funding
  • Clinical research protocol support
  • Ability to use core shared resources with the understanding that users will cite the core in publications
  • Receipt of Cancer Institute calendar of events, programs and seminar announcements by email
  • Increased opportunities for collaboration with other members
  • Inclusion in member directory, which increases opportunities for future collaborations
