dc.description.abstract The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) was founded on 20 May 1965. For the past 50 years, the IARC has served as the specialised cancer research unit of the World Health Organization. The IARC strives to promote international collaboration in cancer research. Celebrating the 50th year of its existence, the IARC held a conference in Lyon on 7 - 10 June 2016, where almost 1 000 scientists from across the globe came together to discuss today’s cancer-related challenges and tomorrow’s agenda for cancer prevention. The programme was characterised by distinguished speakers, including Freddie Bray and Graham Colditz. There were themed parallel sessions on ‘epidemiology’, ‘mechanisms’ and ‘prevention and mortality reduction’ and panel debates and more than 300 posters were presented. en_ZA
