The NICTN and members of the NI Cancer Research Consumer Forum (NICRCF) got involved in a variety of activities to raise awareness of cancer research in Northern Ireland for World Cancer Research Day, 24 September 2019.
In Antrim Hospital, CRUK co-funded Clinical Research Nurses Philip McAuley and Alison Begg raised awareness of cancer clinical trials (see photo below).
NICTN staff and members of the NICRCF attended a tour of the NI Precision Medicine Centre in the Health Sciences Building and visited the Centre for Cancer Research and Cell Biology, QUB. NICTN staff and Forum members alike were inspired by what they saw and heard, and wish to thank QUB for organising the visit and thank researchers and NI Biobank staff for their tour and time discussing current innovations in cancer resesarch (see photos attached).
