ICGC Members Funding Affiliate Status Projects (fewer than 500 samples)

In early 2012, ICGC approved establishing Affiliate status for projects with less than $10 million USD in funding and fewer than 500 cases available for analysis. This decision was taken to promote the study of rare tumors within the Consortium. Affiliate projects must commit to the analysis of at least 100 tumors. (For very rare tumors, 100 or more cases may be obtained using an aggregate of smaller collections.) The expected level of funding of a project that will study 100 tumors is $3M USD distributed over five years.

Funding agencies that are supporting Affiliate projects with total funding less than $10 million USD and are not supporting any full Cancer Genome Projects will not qualify for membership on the Executive Committee. Existing ICGC member organizations launching Affiliate Status projects retain membership on the Executive Committee.
