Inaugural Blood Cancer Network Ireland Symposium

Blood Cancer Network Ireland (BCNI) will hold its first annual symposium in Galway on May 27th at NUI Galway. The event is open to clinicians, nurses and scientists with an interest in clinical and translational blood cancer research. Among the confirmed speakers at the meeting is Dr Harry Comber, Interim Director of the National Cancer Registry. More details on the inaugural meeting can be found here.

The National Cancer Registry is a partner in BCNI which is a national clinical research network carrying out research on blood cancers in Ireland. Within the network will be a biobank and blood cancer registry, the latter managed by the National Cancer Registry. This will give the registry the opportunity to collect a more detailed clinical dataset on blood cancer, as well as information on patient-reported outcomes. The registry is beginning with multiple myeloma and acute myelogenous leukaemia, and will extend to all blood cancers over the next few years.

BCNI is funded by the Irish Cancer Society and Science Foundation Ireland. The national network involves clinical research facilities in Dublin, Galway and Cork and also works closely with the Irish Clinical Oncology Research Group (ICORG).
