Abramson Cancer Center Membership

The Abramson Cancer Center (ACC) is a dynamic, NCI-approved, comprehensive cancer center whose members share the common goal of eliminating the pain and suffering due to cancer. Our dedicated membership of over 400 scientists and physicians, form a unique scientific community at the University of Pennsylvania, who carry out basic, translational, and clinical cancer research across 8 schools and 41 departments.

The Abramson Cancer Center welcomes researchers and clinicians to become members of the Abramson Cancer Center. Becoming a member allows you to receive announcements of funding opportunities and attend Abramson Cancer Center sponsored retreats and symposia. Members are also eligible to receive ACC news e-publications. Members are strongly encouraged to collaborate with other ACC investigators and to participate in ACC sponsored events.

Members of the Abramson Cancer Center are organized into research programs, and have access to shared-resource core-facilities supported, in some cases along with other UPenn stakeholders, by the Cancer Center. Members are assigned to 1 of 3 categories representing their level of involvement in cancer research and clinical care.

To apply for membership, please send (electronically) your completed membership application, together with your current CV, NIH biosketch, pending and current grants, and any other supporting documents, as Word or PDF files, to Jennifer McGuire: rjen@exchange.upenn.edu.
