MTCI was delighted to host Dr Dennis Slamon's visit to Dublin in February of this year. Dr Slamon is one of the foremost cancer researchers in the world today and is particularly recognised for his pioneering work in breast cancer, which paved the way for the development of trastuzumab (Herceptin), a drug which has transformed the treatment for many patients with breast cancer.
