IARC and Staff
Scientific StaffThe scientific work of IARC is organized into research Sections, which themselves are composed of one or more research Groups. The Sections focus on particular areas of cancer research, while often collaborating closely on issues of common interest. Scientific staff include visiting scientists and post-doctoral students in addition to short- and long-term staff members. IARC takes very seriously its role in training the next generation of cancer researchers, and its worldwide perspective is reflected in the development of expertise in people who will return to work in low- to medium-income countries. Many students complete part or all of their studies for higher qualifications at IARC and make valuable contributions to the research programmes before pursuing a cancer research career elsewhere.
IARC currently has around 300 staff coming from more than 50 countries.
