In this episode, we host our first joint interview, featuring the two co-leads of the All-Island Cancer Research Institute (AICRI), a unique initiative that brings together cancer researchers and clinicians from both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.

Prof William Gallagher, Professor of Cancer Biology at University College Dublin; and Prof Mark Lawler, Professor of Digital Health at Queen’s University Belfast, speak about innovation in oncology research, and the fascinating journey of how AICRI came about, its successes to date, and the various areas it is working in.

The conversation highlights several key themes in oncology research and innovation, including the impact of environmental factors on cancer, the importance of further commitment to cancer prevention, the need for interdisciplinary research, as well as an increased focus on cancer survivorship and quality of life, the significance of international collaborations, and the use of data in driving advancements in cancer research and patient care.
