BCNI held its 4th annual symposium in University College Cork on 24th May 2019

Our annual symposium is becoming ever more popular and is on its way to becoming one of the most important meetings nationally for clinical, reseach and industry personnel with an interest in translational amd clinical research in blood cancers. 

The title of this year’s symposium was "Blood Cancers : Advances in therapeutic strategies and enhanced patient registration to improve outcomes" The symposium provided the opportunity to hear about the latest research and hottest topics in blood cancer research from an excellent line-up of international experts. The symposium also stimulated great interactions between Irish and international blood cancer researchers and between academics and industry researchers helping to form collaborations and come up with novel ideas for blood cancer therapeutics development.

Congratulations to

  • Alan O'Ceilleachair from the National Cancer Registry Ireland who won the best poster award for his work on looking at the trends and costs of the management of Acute Myeloid Leukemia

Well done to all involved in organising such a great meeting.!!
