The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) is pleased to welcome 21 students and faculty from the Global Health Research Center of Inje University, Republic of Korea.
The students will meet with Dr Christopher Wild, Director of IARC, and Dr Eduardo Seleiro, who will provide an overview of the Agency′s research activities and present the latest cancer trends.
Cancer is a leading cause of death in the Republic of Korea, which has been an IARC Participating State since 2006. Seven postdoctoral researchers from the country have been trained at the Agency so far.
The Agency also has a number of partnerships with the Republic of Korea and is currently setting up a large study on gastric cancer prevention integrated into the national gastric cancer screening programme.
In early March, Dr Wild will visit the Republic of Korea to attend the 5th meeting of the Asian National Cancer Centres Alliance (ANCCA).

On 3 February 2014, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) released World Cancer Report 2014, a collaboration of over 250 leading scientists from more than 40 countries, describing multiple aspects of cancer research and control.
In a new video, the IARC Director, Dr Christopher P. Wild, presents key messages of the Report, emphasizing the need for prevention to address the alarming rise in cancer burden globally. About half of all cancers could be avoided if current knowledge was adequately implemented. Regarder la video, Lire Communiqué de Presse No 224
