World Renown Cancer Specialists Visit Almac Sciences
March 20, 2006
Almac Diagnostic Services Ltd, a leading cancer diagnostics company responsible for the development of the next generation cancer products today hosted distinguished guest lectures and workshops involving the world’s foremost cancer specialists.
Chairman of Almac Sciences, Sir Allen McClay welcomed the visiting delegation to the Craigavon headquarters of the Almac Group where the visiting cancer specialists had the opportunity to see the exciting work taking place in Almac Diagnostic Services.
Sir Allen McClay commented:
“It is an honour for Northern Ireland to host such a senior group of specialists in the cancer field from across the globe. This visit is very significant and indeed it is appropriate that the team is in Northern Ireland where some very exciting work is going on in the development of cancer treatments. The recently opened Cancer Center at the City Hospital, the work of Professor Paddy Johnston and others and the research work going on here at Almac Diagnostic Services, rank as key milestones in the development of cancer treatments.
“Not many people know that work taking place here in Craigavon is at the leading edge of global cancer research; Professor Lui and his colleagues – all of whom are well known to Almac – can now see at first hand the role played by Almac and Northern Ireland in cancer research.”
