Pictured at the second annual Cancer Retreat organised by Cancer Trials Ireland to mark International Clinical Trials Day (May 20) were Ms Deirdre Somers, Chair, Cancer Trials Ireland, and Prof Ray McDermott, consultant medical oncologist and Cancer Trials Ireland Clinical Lead.
The retreat took place in the Royal College of Surgeons, Dublin 2, and saw a number of Irish and international speakers come together to discuss a range of current issues of interest to the cancer clinical trials community, as well as future challenges and opportunities. Latest figures from Cancer Trials Ireland show that there were 364 people enrolled on clinical trials in Ireland in 2021, up from 320 in 2020. The retreat was supported by Pfizer, Roche, AbbVie, MSD, Novartis and Bayer. More information at www. cancertrials.ie.
