56th Annual Conference 2020

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.

“The IACR provides a platform to bring together cancer researchers and healthcare professionals from all disciplines to share their expertise to ultimately improve the patient journey from diagnosis, through treatment to survivorship” Prof. Amanda McCann
