The Emer Casey Foundation is
The Emer Casey Foundation is dedicated to providing funding to the DISOVARY consortium to secure the best independent research to detect the early signs of Uterine/Ovarian cancer. Following Emer’s death in June 2006 the Casey family promised they would do all they could to help this research in the hope of securing a future of early detection.
The Emer Casey Foundation is currently sponsoring three Phd Fellowship students, whose focus is in the areas of chemoresistance, cancer stem cells, circulating tumour cells and the body’s immune response to cancer. The scientists have already identified a panel of proteins that can be identified in the blood of ovarian cancer patients. They have developed a near patient testing device to assess a patient’s response to chemotherapy and are currently working
