Professor John Crown was awarded the DCU President’s Impact Award for research he leads at the National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology (NICB) to improve the treatment options available to women with metastatic HER2-positive breast cancer. Under his leadership, a new drug combination to treat women with this type of breast cancer, that is based on prior preclinical studies from the Cancer Clinical Research Trust (CCRT) research team based in the NICB, has entered clinical development in a recently opened Phase 1 clinical trial named CAROLINE-1. The CAROLINE-1 study received support from CCRT, The Caroline Foundation, BreastPredict and Puma Biotechnology Inc.
Mary was the founder clinical research oncology data manager in St. Vincent’s University Hospital. She defined the top end of the scale of excellence for this crucial job. The quality of her work was the subject of rave reviews by international trial monitors and auditors over the years. Above all she was a dear friend to us all on the CCRT team. She will be deeply missed.
Our sincerest sympathies to her daughter Annie, her granddaughters Isabel and Mollie, her son-in-law Rob and her family and friends x
We remember our beautiful friend, Elaine, at this time. Elaine was a passionate supporter of The Cancer Clinical Research Trust’s cancer research programme and one of our most dedicated and inspirational fundraisers. She will be truly missed. Our condolences to her family and many friends on their great loss.
