With Breast Cancer Awareness Month taking place this October, our Researcher in Focus is Prof Darran O’Connor, a funded investigator with BREAST-PREDICT, the Irish Cancer Society’s breast cancer research collaboration.
To acknowledge and celebrate all the hard work of our research scientists, in the lab, clinic and elsewhere, we will be hosting the Irish Cancer Society Research Awards on 15 February 2019. This year we will have four award categories open for applications.
The European Cancer Concord, involving the Irish Cancer Society and led by researchers from Queen’s University Belfast, has won the prestigious 2018 European Health Award. This award honours initiatives that help tackle some of Europe’s most pressing health challenges.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. The Irish Cancer Society is proud to announce that it has recently granted funding to Dr Gerard Brien, Trinity College Dublin, for research into Ewing sarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer that occurs in young children and teenagers.
