Our Mission is:
To investigate the major issues in the genesis and secondary spread of cancer in order to develop effective strategies for cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment.
Our Strategy is:
Effective medical research is a continuum from the “bench to beside”. There must be clinical engagement as well as scientific endeavour – it is a bi-directional process. ‘There should be no separation between people who operate at the basic science level and between people who operate at clinical investigation level and clinical care. It is a continuum from one through to the other” says Professor Gerry O’Sullivan of Cork Cancer Research Centre. “If you don’t have a Centre where you have that engagement and that cross interactivity between the groups, it often becomes irrelevant.”
