Event description
Please join us as we celebrate 21 years of the MRCG and look to the future of Irish health research

About this Event

We are delighted to celebrate 21 years as the umbrella body representing medical and health research charities in Ireland and look forward to welcoming you to our conference examining the future of health research.

Attendees will also hear from past and current MRCG Chairpersons on what we can learn from the past and how we can look to the future of the MRCG.

We are very pleased to welcome the leading spokespeople on health from across the political spectrum who will be taking part in a panel discussion on the challenges facing health research in Ireland. Panellists include Dr Michael Harty, T.D. (Independent), Stephen Donnelly T.D. (Fianna Fail), Louise O’Reilly, T.D. (Sinn Fein) Senator Colm Burke (Fine Gael) and Roisin Shortall, T.D. (Social Democrats).

We will also hear from a number of our members who will present case studies on their valuable work in research and look forward to facilitating potential research collaborations through our member poster viewings and networking opportunity.

And, as if all that wasn’t enough, we will also be unveiling a new look for the MRCG and celebrating with cake and a post conference drinks reception- we are 21 after all!

Registration for the conference is essential.

Full agenda will be published shortly. Please see draft agenda below.
