Updating Your Member Profile

Your online member profile provides the general public and other JCCC members with up-to-date contact information and biographical data, as well as your scientific interests, affiliations and notable cancer-related publications.

All member profiles contain the following information:

  • Name and title(s)
  • Member photo
  • Department and program area affiliations
  • Contact information
  • Scientific interest(s)
  • Selected cancer-related publications

Profiles for members with clinical practices include the following additional information:

  • Specialty
  • Gender and Languages Spoken
  • Hospital Affiliation(s)
  • Education
  • Certification(s)
  • Clinical interest(s)

Note that your Selected Publications listing is limited to a maximum of five (5) publications.

The Member Directory is database-driven, and updates to the database are generally made in batches on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. Any updates or changes you submit will usually take two to four weeks to appear on the live JCCC website.

To submit updates and/or changes to existing member profile content, contact Rich Thigpen, JCCC Computer Support Services Manager, at RThigpen@mednet.ucla.edu.

Profile Photos

Each member profile includes a companion member photo. Members are welcome to submit their own photo in electronic form for posting. Supported file formats include .jpg, .tif, .eps and .png. Pixel dimensions are 138 wide by 194 tall (we can resize from larger dimensions).

If you do not have your own photo to submit, or would like to replace your current profile photo, we can arrange to take a new photo at your office or lab location.

To arrange an appointment to take a new photo or for assistance with any member photo issues, contact Peter Bracke, Internet Communications Specialist, at PBracke@mednet.ucla.edu.

Listings of On-Campus Activities and Seminars

The Upcoming Events section of the JCCC website lists all cancer center-related events and happenings, including researcher seminars.

If you have an upcoming event or seminar you would like to submit for listing, please contact Emma Ashley at EAshley@mednet.ucla.edu. All approved event listings generally take one to two days to be posted to the site.

Media Releases

Do you have any recent research findings, studies or accomplishments that are of interest to the readers of the JCCC website?

All members have access to our Media Relations office for assistance with placing a media release on the website's Latest News section. Media releases are also posted concurrently on all JCCC social media and (if containing video content) our official YouTube channel.

For further information on placing a media release, contact Reggie Kumar, Senior Media Relations Officer, at ReggieKumar@mednet.ucla.edu.

Researcher Profiles

The JCCC website regularly profiles members in our Researchers Profiles section. Putting a human face on cancer research, our profile will highlight your current research focus, laboratory accomplishments, background information and related personal interests.

Participants will be asked to conduct a short interview, and provide follow-up review for verification of quotes and fact checking (as needed). You are also encouraged to provide any additional photographic material and/or partake in a companion video interview.

If you are interested in taking part in a profile, contact Peter Bracke at PBracke@mednet.ucla.edu.
