A global forum for researchers, educators and policy makers to advance the prevention of cancer


WHO WE ARE

The international cancer prevention institute (ICPI) is a global forum for researchers, educators and policy makers to advance the prevention of cancer. We are developing a novel teaching and research institute paradigm that is not limited by physical boundaries and instead brings together members belonging to institutions around the world. The ICPI aims to build a strong relationship between researchers at universities and large organisations in order to pioneer new initiatives in cancer prevention, especially those relating to teaching, education and outreach platforms.



OUR MISSION


To support cancer prevention through interdiciplinary research, education, training and development



OUR IMPACT

RESEARCH
  • Individual research programs on early detection of premalignant lesions and management / prevention of their malignant progression
EDUCATION
  • Establishment of an international school of cancer prevention with residency programs (in Pathology and Dermatology)
  • A PhD program with fellowship opportunities and an exchange program
  • Opportunities to gain training and accreditation via a virtual learning platform
DEVELOPMENT
  • Context-specific transfer of screening and early detection technologies to the developing world
  • Establishment of cancer registries that record both premalignant and malignant cancers.


WE ARE UNIQUE


Our Size Fits All

Cancer prevention is a monumental and complex challenge composed of a multiplicity of specific tasks that vary greatly across regions, communities and individuals. Using small, focused working-groups allows us to scale-down to the level of these specific challenges, and effectively tailor our responses to the context in which they are required.


Internationally Small

Our small size need not impede our reach. Taking advantage of the established networks of participating individuals and institutions, ICPI has developed a presence in multiple locations across Europe, the US, Asia, Australia and Africa.


Virtually There

ICPI is a truly “virtual institute”, not physically limited to a single location, but rather based on a dynamic and open platform to facilitate equitable global collaborations that work toward a common goal.


We Mix It Up

ICPI seeks out a unique mix of participants to form collaborations with a rich skillset and perspective.
We bring together basic researchers, clinicians, public health practitioners, policy makers and humanitarian organizations that have diverse skills but common goals.
