Breast cancer researchers from across Ireland collaborate in a project to tackle the disease.
50 experts from the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland are set to combine their expertise within Ireland’s first Collaborative Cancer Research Centre established by the Irish Cancer Society. Over £6 million is expected to be invested over five years into the centre. Researchers from across Irish universities are to be involved.
The centre, led by William Gallagher of University College Dublin, “will for the first time in Ireland harness the wealth of data available on breast cancer from around the globe to inform new clinical trials and treatments, and link in with world leading scientists and institutions such as the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston and the Cambridge Research Institute in the UK.”
