Members of this organization will include worldwide Chinese American cancer researchers in the field of basic and translational cancer research. The main body of the members is composed of cancer research scientists who have an independent laboratory and cancer physicians who have completed residency and fellowship training and have a faculty appointment in academic affiliate institutes or hospitals in North America. The rest of the members in this organization also include Chinese investigators in cancer research from Mainland China, Taiwan, Singapore, other regions in Asia, and in Europe, Australia and South America. We will have associate members that include postdoctoral fellows and PhD students in the cancer research field.
Currently, we have a communication group comprised of more than 600 scientists, physician-scientists, and physicians in the areas of basic and translational, clinical cancer research as well as pharmaceutical anti-cancer drug developing and treatments. The majority of our group are independent investigators at Universities and research institutions in US. Most of us are originally from Mainland China and Taiwan. These 600 scientists constitute a full spectrum of Chinese Americans in cancer research field: they rank from Assistant Professor to full Professor to Department Chairs. Women faculty members form a significant portion of this communication group. Nearly half of the group members are active AACR members.
