The National Breast Cancer Research Institute Commits €2 Million for Research at the University of Galway
The National Breast Cancer Research Institute (NBCRI) has pledged €2 million to support a range of research projects at the University of Galway over the next two years. This funding will facilitate critical investigations into various aspects of breast cancer, aiming to advance our understanding of metastatic breast cancer, including its risks and treatment responses.
The collaborative efforts will extend to cardio-oncology, a field focusing on the impact of cancer therapies on the heart. Additionally, research will encompass breast cancer imaging as well as women’s health, encompassing post-treatment support and rehabilitation.
This partnership builds upon a longstanding relationship between NBCRI and the University of Galway. Part of the funding will be directed towards establishing a cancer biobank dedicated to preserving tissue and blood samples crucial for ongoing research endeavours.
The university underscores that this agreement will create research opportunities spanning from undergraduate to doctoral and postdoctoral levels as scientists work diligently to address pivotal questions concerning enhanced breast cancer detection and treatment.
Professor of Surgery at the University of Galway, Michael Kerin, expressed his hope that these endeavours would ultimately allow a broader population to benefit from advancements in medical science, particularly in the domains of breast cancer detection and treatment.
It is important to note that NBCRI is predominantly funded through public donations stemming from fundraising events conducted nationwide.
