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.

This year, for the first time, we will have an evening session on the Wednesday night before the meeting (the 24th) which has been organised by the recently elected IACR Junior Council. This session focuses on the many career paths available to cancer researchers (particularly post PhD) and on communicating our research to the wider community. This session targets young and new members to the cancer research community, providing a forum for older more experienced researchers/CEO’s/patients to pass on their experiences and advice, through a short talk and a discussion panel. It promises to be great.
On online registration will be opening shortly so please stay in touch by checking the IACR website.
