UICC is proud to be producing the IJC since 1966.

IJC covers a broad spectrum of areas in cancer research such as: 

  • Cancer Epidemiology, Cancer Genetics and Epigenetics 
  • Infectious Causes of Cancer, Molecular Cancer Biology
  • Tumor Immunology and Microenvironment, Tumor Markers  and Signatures
  • Cancer Therapy and Prevention.

JCO Global Oncology (JCO GO)

The JCO Global Oncology is a project in partnership between UICC and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) to provide a new channel of communication for the global cancer community. First published in September 2015, it covers the wide field of cancer care, from an overview of cancer care resources in Africa, to themes from clinical practice like the multi-centre trial from India about the concurrent chemoradiation for cancer of the cervix.

The JCO Global Oncology Editor-in-Chief is Dr Gilberto Lopes.

Please visit the Journal's website to read more about cancer care and care delivery in resource-poor settings.
