Allied Health Professional Research Award 2023

Nurse supervising exercise

On this page:


The Irish Cancer Society wishes to invite research teams led by eligible allied health professionals (AHP) to submit an application for the Allied Health Professional Cancer Research Award 2023.

The aim of this award is to stimulate, develop, and support allied health cancer research in the Republic of Ireland. As such, this award will fund an AHP-led partnership-based research project between an allied health professional and an academic researcher. AHP-academic partnerships encourage research that is of the highest quality and clinical relevance, while expediting the translation of research into practice. 

This is intended to be a transformative investment in an AHP who demonstrates great potential in driving and leading clinically relevant and innovative cancer research in Ireland. This research will focus on areas which will impact positively on patient care outcomes and should be aligned to the National Cancer Strategy 2017-2026  and the Irish Cancer Society Strategy 2020-2025.
