Did you miss Prof John Crown at the Ireland East Cancer Open House on 23-24 January?
Not to worry, Dr Amanda McCann and her colleagues in the UCD Translational Oncology Research Group will most likely be hosting a similar open house event in the coming months due to the huge success of the inaugural event!
On Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th January 2014 Dr McCann and her colleagues invited staff, students and the general public to their inaugural Ireland East Cancer Open House at the UCD Charles & Conway Institutes.
This two day event highlighted the biomedical and clinical cancer research which currently takes place across UCD and its affiliated hospitals within the Ireland East Hospital Group. It showcased current investigations and core research technologies available within the UCD Conway Institute with the objective of building strong research collaborations between clinician and laboratory scientists.
The programme also featured a public forum where cancer survivors and patient advocate groups were able to tour the UCD research facilities and hear about current research initiatives. The public event took place on Thursday 23rd January 2014 and also included a short presentation by Prof John Crown (Consultant Oncologist, St Vincent’s University Hospital) followed by a patient advocate-led Question & Answer session.
