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.
“The IACR provides a platform to facilitate the sharing of research through communication, collaboration and education by bringing together cancer researchers, healthcare professionals and patient advocacy groups with the ultimate goal of conquering cancer.”
Prof. Tracy Robson
President, IACR 2020-2023
