HERO is an organisation set up to provide funding for research projects and education in haematology initiated by university teaching hospitals in Cork.
HERO supports research that significantly contributes to scientific knowledge on blood disorders and their treatment. In the last decade alone, there has been extensive progress in treating blood cancers and curing some.HERO researchers seek to build on and extend this progress.
HERO welcomes any donations-time or funding. Join our fundraising committee if you can give your time. All proceeds donated to us contribute to continuing research in haematology in UCC and the ongoing education of haematology nurses. All our board and fundraisers are unpaid volunteers.
