ICRP partners represent a wide range of governmental, public and non-profit cancer research funding organizations from across the world. Our membership includes organizations focused on one type of cancer through to health research organizations supporting research into many cancer types.
- Partners are full members and provide nominated contact points for ICRP, and vote on any changes to strategic direction or policies.
- Associate members are funding organizations who have joined ICRP as part of a consortium. They enjoy full access to the ICRP partner site, can participate in meetings, analyses and networking. Their data submissions are coordinated by the nominated partner.
