IACR Covid-19 Grant

The Irish Association for Cancer Researcher acknowledges the negative impact that COVID-19 has had on the oncology research community in Ireland.  This impact was felt particularly by those PhD/MSc students who were either finishing or who had just started their studies.
In response to the impact that COVID-19 had on early-stage researchers, the IACR has provided two rounds of Educational Grant awards to PhD/MSc students to cover a funded extension of their projects.  This extension provides additional funding which can enable students time to complete studies which were delayed by COVID.  This IACR COVID grant could be used to cover student stipend, fees, or consumables.
The IACR asked those students who had received funding to share how the IACR COVID grant supported their research by submitting a video presentation or short summary – examples of which can be found below.
