We want to transform breast cancer from often being a fatal disease into a treatable long term illness
We aim to achieve our vision by speeding up breast cancer research discovery times in Ireland
- To create a National Bio & Patient Profiling Resource – where the eight designated cancer centers collaborate and share samples, thereby increasing volumes available for all clinicians and scientists to access.
- To create a State of the Art Clinical Breast Cancer Research Facility offering translational therapies…from bench to bedside for patients diagnosed.
- To heighten awareness and education on the importance of breast health amongst women of all ages – Earlier detection will save lives.
