Stanford Cancer Institute Membership

I. Overview

Stanford received a Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in June 2007. The major purpose of a cancer center is to promote discovery relevant to the pathogenesis, prevention and treatment of cancer, and to capitalize on those discoveries to benefit patients and the community.  The NCI awards CCSGs to institutions that have a critical mass of cancer-relevant scientific, clinical and population-based research. To that end, the leadership of the Cancer Institute would like to identify all of those individuals within the broad Stanford community whose research and/or patient care activities are relevant to cancer and to encourage them to apply for membership.
