A Few Words from Our President

Prof. Jacintha O'Sullivan

Prof. Jacintha O'Sullivan

President, IACR 2024-2027

The Irish Association for Cancer Research is an All Ireland non-profit organisation for cancer researchers across all disciplines. 

Our aim is to advance cancer research across the island, by bringing together experts in this area, so that patient survival can be improved year on year, through cancer prevention, earlier diagnosis and new and optimised treatments to ultimately reduce the burden of cancer. The patient is at the heart of everything we do from diagnosis, through to treatment and survivorship.

To accelerate this process we believe that by working together, across all disciplines and centres, we hope to raise the profile of cancer research in Ireland and generate a world-class environment for cancer research for the public benefit.
