Orla Dolan

Chief Executive

Background

Orla has been part of the team since 2006 when she came on board to help out on a temporary basis! Inspired by the quality of the research she joined full time within six months and has since presided over the expansion of the fundraising team. Originally a trained scientist, Orla worked in business management for 6 years with companies in the US and now applies all that knowledge to helping ensure the scientists and clinicians have the necessary resources they need for their research. Orla is a board member of the National Cancer Registry of Ireland.  “I do not want lack of money to be the reason someone does not get an effective treatment for their cancer”. “The research we fund is focused and targeted and thus worthy of significant investment.”
