Cancer Research: Biseach Initiative


Location: B01 McCourtney Hall

BISEACH is Irish for Healing - Improving Cancer Outcomes through Collaborative Research

The University of Galway, the Lambe Institute for Translational Research - Galway, and the Harper Cancer Research Institute have come together to establish a long-term strategy of faculty and student collaboration.

Principal investigators, faculty, and students from both institutions join forces to identify research opportunities, partner in grant applications, and create joint publications and patents. Fighting Irish Fighting Cancer on both sides of the Atlantic aim to build on the infrastructure, talent, and ideas of both institutions for a global impact in the area of cancer research.
