TCRN Member Groups

Criteria for Membership

To become a member of the TCRN, an individual must:

  1. be predominantly in the employ of a TCRN member institution*, or be predominantly self-employed with formal affiliation with a TCRN member institution and;
  2. work in cancer research or in the delivery of cancer services or have responsibility for the care of patients with cancer (such as in the case of general practitioners) and agree to work actively towards the goals and KPI’s of the TCRN, and;
  3. be confirmed to fulfil points 1 & 2 above by the Responsible Member who leads the individual’s TCRN member group.

Full details of the requirements and benefits of TCRN membership can be found in the TCRN Membership Charter and we ask that you become familiar with this document. In short, all members are expected to understand and support the goals and KPIs of the TCRN; participate in translational research activities, and report this involvement annually; and communicate regularly with your Responsible Member in order provide the TCRN Operations & Projects Team with the information necessary for us to fulfil our own reporting obligations to the Cancer Institute NSW and other stakeholders. 

In return, the TCRN provides you with a range of services, including research support, professional development opportunities, access to various funding schemes (both internal and through Cancer Institute NSW), research collaborations, networking events, and regular network communications including our monthly newsletter, Nexus.

*TCRN Member institutions include the founding institutions (UNSW, POWH, SGH, RHW, TSH, BMORU and UTS), and any other institution that is subsequently determined by the Leadership Council to be a member institution.
