Member: A full-time faculty member of UCSF who (1) has cancer-relevant peer-reviewed non-training funding from the NIH/NCI or from an NCI-recognized organization; or (2) is a clinical science leader as evidenced by leadership of therapeutic investigator initiated institutional trials (in-house, internally reviewed trials, including those collaborative studies conducted with industry sponsorship in which the center is a primary contributor to the design, implementation, and monitoring of the trial, or participation in a multi-site trial initiated by an investigator at another center); or (3) holds a Cancer Center leadership position. Members may be either programmatically or non-programmatically aligned. Membership is typically limited to two Programs but a third Program is allowable in exceptional cases.
Associate Member: A health professional and/or laboratory, clinical, or population research scientist holding a full-time faculty appointment at UCSF who demonstrates involvement in cancer research and/or patient care within the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center but does not qualify as a Member. Associate Members are not officially aligned with Programs, but are often significant participants within them.
All Cancer Center members are expected to contribute to the strength of the Cancer Center through support of Cancer Center activities. Access to Cancer Center controlled space and opportunities for leadership roles are privileges given to Cancer Center Members. Members may compete for developmental funds. Associate Members may also compete for these funds provided that clear evidence of sponsorship (or mentoring) is evident from a Cancer Center Member.
