Member Transfer Guidelines

Active membership is open to qualified scientists of any nation who have established a record of scholarly activity resulting in original, peer-reviewed publications relevant to cancer and cancer-related biomedical science, or who have made substantial contributions to cancer research in an administrative or educational capacity.

Transferring your membership is fast and easy.
