Translational cancer research: balancing prevention and treatment to combat cancer globally

05/01/2015 In a Commentary in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute, IARC Director Dr Christopher Wild highlights how the latest knowledge on the underlying molecular pathways leading to cancer also offers remarkable fresh opportunities for cancer prevention, by applying the advances in understanding to population-based studies. The conclusions come from an international workshop held at IARC, supported by the European Commission-funded EurocanPlatform project, which brings together 28 European cancer institutions and organizations to help advance cancer research and treatment. The Commentary is accompanied by an Editorial in the same issue, written by Dr Robert Hoover and Dr Stephen Chanock from the United States National Cancer Institute.
