We invest in world-class research, leading the way in novel and personalised cancer treatments. Through this we can make an impact on the number of people in Ireland who can survive a cancer diagnosis. We aim to expand the range of treatments and develop new therapies for the most difficult to treat cancers. Through increased research we impact the quality of life for cancer patients and will save peoples lives.
We fund world-class laboratory research leading to clinical trials and more effective treatments for cancer patients.
We currently fund multiple teams of leading laboratory scientists working on Autophagy, Gene Therapy and Novel Therapeutics based at Cork Cancer Research Centre. We are supporting clinical trials in Mercy University Hospital, Cork University Hospital and St. Vincent’s Hospital and are providing pioneering treatments for patients all over Ireland.
As a team they work to investigate cancers including breast, head and neck, colorectal, oesophageal, ovarian, melanoma and haematological cancers. Meet the team and find out more about their ground-breaking research.
We also fund Clinical Trial Nurses who coordinate delivery of innovative new treatments for cancer patients referred to us by their oncologists and surgeons. These trials are a vital part of the treatment arsenal for clincians giving them the greatest numbers of options for their patients. Our collaborating clinicians feel this is vital to what the do and hear them tell you why here.
We are proud to fund this world-class cancer research, taking place herein Ireland – to help us continue with our vital work, find out how you can get involved.
We need to raise in excess of €1.5 million this year – we receive no annual state funding and rely solely upon the generous support of the public.
