Full Cancer Center Members

Full Members will be researchers who are active investigators participating in cancer-relevant research at the University of Iowa. They can be in the tenure, clinical, research, or research scientist track. All full members are expected to maintain scholarly activity in the form of peer-reviewed cancer-relevant publications AND meet one or more of the following criteria.

  • Be PI on a peer-reviewed cancer relevant grant within the past two years
  • Currently be supported for a total of 10 percent effort or more as a co-investigator on peer-reviewed cancer relevant grant(s)
  • Serve in a leadership role for a vital aspect of the cancer center
  • Serve a leadership role in the clinical or population research efforts of the cancer center with 20 percent or more effort dedicated to clinical or population-based cancer investigation

Associate Members

Associate members will be cancer researchers who are early in their careers and have not yet obtained peer-reviewed funding for research, and/or have internal peer review funding made by the HCCC Research Review Committee. Alternatively, associate members will be cancer clinicians who dedicate a minimum of 50 percent of their effort to the care of cancer patients at the University of Iowa, have demonstrated a commitment to the cancer center research mission, and participate to a significant degree (estimated as 20 percent effort or greater) in clinical research. This can include enrolling patients on clinical protocols, serving as investigators on cancer research projects, such as industry supported clinical trials, or opening investigator-initiated interventional clinical trials.

Note: Full and Associate members will be listed as “members” in the CCSG P30 grant.

Affiliate Members

Affiliate members are those in the research or clinical community at the University of Iowa who have an interest in cancer. Although Affiliate Members are not eligible for HCCC-supported core discounts, they are welcome to participate in any HCCC activities, including program membership, HCCC mailing lists, and are eligible for certain types of HCCC pilot funding such as Oberley awards and American Cancer Society pilot grants administered by the Cancer Center or other initiatives supported by gift funds.
