Emma Hannigan Research Fellowship

We are delighted to announce that Dr Damir Vareslija has been the first recipient of the Emma Hannigan Research Fellowship. The fellowship will run for a three year period. Dr Damir is focusing his research on metastatic brain disease, secondary to the primary breast cancer, which occurs in 10%-30% of patients with advanced disease.

We are delighted the fellowship ensures that the legacy of our dear friend and BCI Ambassador lives strong.

Emma’s ‘Text CURE’ to 50300 campaign (which she initiated in her final days) raised an amazing €135,000 to support our ongoing research efforts.
