About the IARC Education and Training Programme
Since its inception in 1965, the IARC Education and Training Programme has had two main goals:
- to provide training for new generations of cancer researchers and health professionals who wish to pursue a career in cancer research in order to tackle the rising global cancer burden
- to develop individual and institutional capacity for cancer surveillance, detection, and prevention at the local level.
These missions are fulfilled through the provision of Fellowships, the organization of courses, and the provision of learning and training resources.
Fellowships are offered to both early career and senior scientists.
Although applications from all countries are welcome, those from low- and medium-resource countries, or applications involving projects related to low- and medium-resource countries, are encouraged.
In addition to the Summer School that takes place every year in Lyon, France, IARC also runs training courses worldwide (see Facts and Figures).
IARC's education and training activities are conducted in collaboration with several partners.
