“There are many benefits to DCI membership for faculty, including enhanced opportunities for collaborative research efforts, access to DCI educational and administrative resources, and the opportunity to apply for DCI Pilot Award funds,” says McCall.  The application process requires an NIH-type bio sketch, and a paragraph summary of your research interest/involvement. More information about membership can be found here (requires Duke Network/VPN).

Applicants for membership to the Duke Cancer Institute are considered for full or associate member status generally based on whether they maintain an independently-funded research program.  Membership levels are used for internal record keeping and have no bearing on the benefits of DCI membership, such as ability to apply for pilot funds, discounts at some shared resource laboratories, invitation to networking events and inclusion in educational events. 

The DCI is structured with seven research programs, outlined here.
