Professor Johnston was an Irish physician and world-leading expert in cancer research.
He was a Professor of Oncology at Queen’s University Belfast (QUB), where he served as Vice-Chancellor and President from March 1, 2014. Professor Johnston’s research focus was on the understanding of mechanisms of drug resistance to therapeutic agents.
His philosophy placed the cancer patient at the center of the cancer care and research agenda.
Professor Johnston also had a passion for engaging and invigorating young early-stage cancer researchers and he mentored many great clinicians and scientists.
The Inaugural Professor Patrick Johnston IACR Award for Excellence in Cancer Research Outreach will be presented at the 55th IACR Conference in Belfast 2019, to remember this legacy and will be awarded to the best early stage investigator for excellence in cancer research communication and outreach to the public.
The award is unique, in that it will be voted on by a panel of scientists, patients and the general public following open competition at the annual IACR conference.
We have a number of membership categories available. Find out which membership suits you.
Due to COVID restrictions we have yet to confirm the dates for 57th Annual Conference.
Please check back here later in 2020 to check for updates.
