Dr Sophie Pilleron (IARC Fellow)

France, Postdoctoral Fellow Call 2015

“I’m an ageing and cancer epidemiologist. I had no particular expectation when I applied for the IARC postdoctoral Fellowship as it is very competitive. I did not expect to get it. You can easily guess how delighted I was when I received the email from the FEL office announcing me that I was granted with this prestigious fellowship. The 2 years worked in the Cancer Surveillance Section helped me build the research project that I want to conduct. I’m currently still working at IARC but in another section but I was recently granted with the very prestigious Marie Curie Action global individual fellowship to pursue the work that I started during my IARC fellowship. This would not have been possible without the experience gained during my fellowship at IARC. I am really grateful for this opportunity that I am sure will help me a lot in my future career.”
