ICONIC: A GLOBAL VOICE ON NUTRITION AND CANCER
The International Union of Nutrition Sciences established a formal task force in 2018, The International Collaboration on Nutrition in relation to Cancer (ICONIC) in order to promote and facilitate collaboration between the scientific communities engaged in nutrition and cancer in research, education and training, and in clinical or public health practice.
ICONIC is comprised of organisations with international commitment and responsibility in relation to nutrition and cancer, namely the World Cancer Research Fund International (WCRF), the Union for International Cancer control (UICC), the International Malnutrition Task Force (IMTF), the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
The expectation is that promotion of such collaboration will bring leadership, coherence and focus to
existing activities, as well as stimulate new important activities in areas of particular relevance to LMIC
