Enabling Clinical and Translational Research


Prostate Cancer Research Consortium

Created in October 2003, with funding from the Irish Cancer Society, the Prostate Cancer Research Consortium is a multi-disciplinary, trans-institutional collaboration bringing together researchers from UCD, TCD, RCSI and DCU along with five teaching hospitals in a combined effort to identify novel disease biomarkers for earlier detection and more reliable prognosis for prostate cancer. The federated bioresource of the PCRC has collected tissue, serum/plasma, urine and DNA from 450 patients and these bio-resources fuel the current discovery and validation research programme.

Irish Cervical Screening Research Consortium (CERVIVA)

The CERVIVA consortium, funded by the Health Research Board, is a multi-investigator collaboration encompassing researchers at seven Irish universities, eight hospitals and ten commercial diagnostic/ biotechnology companies. CERVIVA aims to instigate and advance high quality peer-reviewed research programmes that provide the best possible information and guidance in the delivery of cervical screening services to women living in Ireland. This research is significant considering that approximately 85 Irish women die each year from cervical cancer which is almost twice the EU average.
