Applicants are encouraged to read about and identify the most appropriate scientific program for their research interests. Applicants are also encouraged to discuss their research and proposed membership with the appropriate program leaders.


To apply for cancer center membership, interested individuals should submit a membership application form via Qualtrics and then email an NIH biosketch (with other support) to the Lineberger Data Curation Team,

  • As part of the Qualtrics survey, applicants are encouraged to provide a two to three paragraph research statement describing cancer-related research and outlining credentials.
  • The cancer focus of the research should be clear.
  • Cancer-relevant publications and grant funding should be identified on the biosketch.


Following submission of requested materials, the Center’s Membership Review Committee will review the application and determine membership status and, as appropriate, program affiliation.

The Membership Review Committee meets three times a year, generally in January, May and October. The Center will notify applicants regarding Committee decisions.
