Professor Mathieu Boniol
We know the cause of nearly 100% of skin cancer, UV being the key factor. Primary prevention is the solution to reduce their burden. My research aims at finding the best means of prevention.
Mathieu Boniol is Vice-President, Biostatistics at the International Prevention Research Institute, where he supervises works done by a team of statisticians, data managers and other functions. He is also Professor of Global Public Health at Strathclyde University.
Scientific activities mainly deal with etiologic researches based on biostatistics and epidemiological methods. In particular, he is involved in many works on UV exposure and skin cancer. Between 2003 and 2009, he held a position of Senior Biostatistician at the International Agency for Research on Cancer. He is a member of the International Task Force on Skin Cancer Screening and Prevention that evaluates the national skin cancer screening in Germany. He is a member of the board of directors of Euroskin.
