CISNET Affiliate Program

In the spirit of open collaboration, CISNET encourages the participation of modelers who are not currently funded through the CISNET mechanism. Investigators working on population modeling of cancer trends who wish to be associated with the CISNET group may apply for affiliate status. Applicants for affiliate status are required to submit a written statement summarizing their prior related work to the Coordinating Center PI from the appropriate cancer site. If collaboration is deemed to be mutually beneficial, the prospective Affiliate and the Coordinating Center PI will work together to write a Statement of Work describing the intended collaborations with the CISNET group. Unanimous approval by CISNET PIs for the relevant cancer site and one designated NCI staff member will be required for affiliate status to be granted. Affiliates attend meetings, share results, and participate in joint collaborations when applicable.
