Welcome from the Directors

Welcome to the home page of the Trinity St James's Cancer Institute. The Institute, the first of its kind in Ireland, builds on the long tradition of outstanding comprehensive cancer care delivered at Ireland's largest academic health campus at St James's Hospital in central Dublin, with the research and educational excellence of Trinity College Dublin, Ireland's leading university. Trinity St James’s Cancer Institute is the first Irish cancer institute to be accredited by the Organisation of European Cancer Institutes (OECI). The OECI mission is to foster high quality comprehensive cancer care, research and education, with the aim of improving patient outcomes throughout Europe.

Our mission is to integrate innovative and ground-breaking cancer science with compassionate, multidisciplinary, patient-focused clinical care through translation of key research findings into incremental advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. We will achieve these goals utilizing the extensive resources located on the St James’s campus, allied with the research and educational expertise of Trinity College Dublin and in partnership with the wider cancer care community.

The ambition of the Trinity St James’s Cancer Institute is to develop a comprehensive cancer centre with national services in areas such as genomics and immunology, to become a leading international institution for translational cancer research, and through its structure and national and international collaborative network to represent a standard bearer for Ireland internationally.

We will continue to work across academia, and will align the efforts of government, industry, philanthropy and patient groups. Ultimately, the Trinity St James’s Cancer Institute will provide national leadership to decrease cancer mortality and continuously improve the cancer patient's experience and outcome.
