Technical Resources Guide

Further to ICORG Translational Subgroup Meeting on the 21st September 2007, please find below the current draft of the Technical Resources Guide. The purpose of this document is to provide a detailed breakdown of the various technological resources available within Ireland that can be harnessed for translational research projects in cancer. Emphasis is placed here on specialised techniques and expertise at different institutions. It should be clear that this is not an exhaustive list of facilities available around the country, but merely a guide. We have mapped out the key contact points at each institute for each technology/facility.
