Annual IACR Meeting comes to Cork City

The Irish Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting 2016 will take place in the Kingsley Hotel, Cork on Thursday 25 and Friday 26 February 2016. We are delighted that our colleague Dr. Mark Tangney is involved in hosting in this great meeting in Cork!




Topic's covered in the Plenary Sessions will include:

  • Microbes and Cancer
  • Immune Based Therapies in Cancer
  • Targeting Oncogenic Signalling Networks in Cancer and
  • The Hallmarks of Cancer - 'the newbies'


For more information and to register go to: www.iacr.ie.



To date, the confirmed speakers include: Dr Mark Tangney (CCRC, UCC, Ireland), Prof Len Seymour (Oxford, UK), Prof Kingston Mills (TCD, Dublin), Prof Gordon Freeman (Dana Farber, Boston), Prof Jochen Prehn (RCSI, Dublin), Prof Ciaran Morrison (NUIG), Dr. Susana Godinho (Barts Cancer Institute, London), Prof John Greally (Albert Einstein, NY) and Prof Fran Balkwill (Barts Cancer Institute, London)


This year, for the first time, there will be an evening session on the Wednesday night before the meeting (the 24th) which has been organised by the recently elected IACR Junior Council. This session focuses on the many career paths available to cancer researchers (particularly post PhD) and on communicating our research to the wider community. This session targets young and new members to the cancer research community, providing a forum for older more experienced researchers/CEO’s/patients to pass on their experiences and advice, through a short talk and a discussion panel. It promises to be great.
