Eibhlin Mulroe of Cancer Trials Ireland discusses the progress of research.

Cancer Trials Ireland has been providing new treatment options to patients across the country for more than 20 years.

CEO Eibhlin Mulroe said the organisation has benefited from increased cross-border work and help from InterTradeIreland.

Mulroe noted that the work carried out by the team of oncologists, clinicians and other experts at Cancer Trials Ireland provides new chances to ill patients. “If you have cancer and you’re looking for an option and there is nothing on the market, a trial is a really good option.

“It has almost become the norm in hospitals all over the world that a cancer patient would be offered the opportunity to go on a clinical trial.”
