Center Steering Committee
The center steering committee consists of program directors, key basic scientists and leaders in medicine and medical oncology, as well as institutional officials (ex-officio). The organization of the center complements the existing departmental administrative structure. Cancer center faculty have appointments in one or more UT departments.
The responsibilities of new faculty recruitment and allocation of laboratory space within the center are shared by the center's director and the appropriate department chair. Faculty may be associated with the Cancer Center as principal investigators, co-investigators or as clinician associates.
