SAN FRANCISCO CANCER INITIATIVE (SF CAN):

CCSG: REPORT YOUR MEMBER ACTIVITIES

It's that time! We are preparing for both the progress report and competing renewal for the NCI Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG).

Member activities are discussed in both the overview of the grant and in the individual program components. It is vital for us to have a clear picture of your activities, publications, grants, and other achievements in order to prepare a grant that reflects our strong Cancer Center. Please help us collect this information by filling out this form.

Because we need to submit a progress report (covering activities from 1/1/2016-12/31/2016) and a competing renewal (covering activities from 1/1/2012-12/31/2016), this survey will ask about your most recent activities, as well as those dating back to 2012.

Work is already underway by Cancer Center Leadership and Program Leaders to draft documents. The information you provide here is the meat of the proposal, so please respond no later than December 15, 2016. We need 100% participation!
