Impacts of Cancer Trials

 An independent report commissioned by Cancer Trials Ireland estimates that the €3.63m funding from the Exchequer, and other grants, allocated to cancer trials in 2016 will save the HSE at least €6.5m in cancer drugs costs, generate almost €6m in tax revenues, contribute €16.5m to Ireland’s GDP and support over 230 jobs, mostly high quality specialist positions. In addition, Cancer Trials Ireland is expected to generate more than €3.85m from international sources. This video summarises some of the highlights.
