About this Event

"The Irish Association for Cancer Research (IACR) is an all-Ireland non-profit organisation for cancer researchers in the Irish biomedical community. Our aim is to bring researchers from different disciplines together to share their expertise and the latest information to help promote greater understanding about cancer and to ultimately help reduce the burden of cancer."

Members of the public are invited to the The Professor Patrick G. Johnston IACR Award for Excellence in Cancer Research Outreach of the 56th IACR Annual Conference (www.iacr.ie) at the Galway Bay Hotel, Salthill, Galway on the 26th February at 6.30 pm.

The Professor Patrick G. Johnston IACR Award for Excellence in Cancer Research Outreach is organised by the IACR Junior Council. The Junior Council's remit is engagement and education of early-stage cancer researchers to foster career development and outreach activities.

Prof. Johnston, QUB, had a passion for engaging and invigorating early stage cancer researchers and he mentored many great clinicians and scientists. In it's second year, this award has been established to honour his legacy.

Format:

Six early career researchers have been selected based on their lay abstract submissions to the IACR Annual Conference 2020. Those selected will take part in a patient communication workshop prior to IACR 2020 and will be asked to prepare a lay presentation on their work. These short presentations will be delivered at "The Professor Patrick Johnston IACR Award for Excellence in Cancer Research Outreach." The audience and a judging panel will then vote to decide the researcher who has best communicated their cancer research.

Schedule:

6.30 pm - "The Professor Patrick Johnston IACR Award for Excellence in Cancer Research Outreach."

Six early-stage cancer research scientists present their work to the public. A judging panel and the audience votes for the most accessible presentation.
