The Irish Association for Cancer Research is an All Ireland non-profit organisation for cancer researchers in the Irish biomedical community.
Our aim is to bring researchers from different disciplines together to share their expertise, latest information to help promote greater understanding about cancer to ultimately help reduce the burden of cancer.
We believe that only by working together across all disciplines and centres can we hope to generate a world class environment for cancer research in Ireland.

Cancer Week Ireland 2016
One in three Irish people will unfortunately be diagnosed with cancer, but Ireland has many dedicated people trying to ensure the best outcome for the tens of thousands affected annually.
Three years ago Trinity College Dublin and the Irish Cancer Society started a concept of having a week where the various different facets of cancer would be presented to the public; the goal being to encourage more people to talk about cancer and to help highlight the enormous work being undertaken to improve lives.
This year we want to make this a bigger and better national conversation about cancer, showcasing the huge advances in research and the wide variety of help and supports available all across the country.
October 17th to 23rd will be Cancer Week Ireland. A week dedicated to a national conversation about cancer.
We want to encourage as many people as possible to hold an event, big or small, which helps those working so hard to overcome cancer to showcase their work to their community.
Lab tours, school events, support groups, training and workshops are all welcome, as are conferences, lectures and talks.
