POI research team meets in person for the first time in over two years
The entire Precision Oncology Ireland team met in person recently for the first time in more than two years, as they held their team meeting at the Radisson Hotel in Cork on the 29th March 2022, prior to the Irish Association of Cancer Research Annual meeting.
The meeting kicked off with an introduction and welcome address from POI Director Prof. Walter Kolch, followed by an informal networking session to give new and old members of the team a chance to catch up and get to know each other.
The afternoon was packed with informative talks from POI researchers ranging from early stage PhD students to senior research fellows, followed by a lively Q&A session and discussion. The meeting concluded with an interactive workshop focused on the past, present and future of POI, with team members providing their feedback on aspects of the programme that work well or not, and discussing the sustainability of the programme and its research projects into the future.
Conversations continued as the POI team repaired to the hotel bar for an entertaining social evening, an activity previously taken for granted, but sorely missed during the pandemic!
