CISNET Affiliate Program

CISNET encourages the participation of modelers who are not funded through the CISNET mechanism. Currently CISNET has eight affiliate members in cancer site groups: three in breast, three in colorectal, and two in lung. Investigators working on population modeling of cancer trends who wish to be associated with the CISNET group may apply for affiliate status. Affiliates attend meetings, share results, and participate in joint collaborations when applicable.
