The Boyne Research Institute is a community-based, not-for-profit, research
facility established in Drogheda, Ireland, in 1992.
The mission of the Boyne Research Institute includes both research and education. Our research mandate covers studies into the causes and prevention of birth defects in families and the long-term complications of cancer during childhood and adolescence.
Birth defects are not just numbers, but crippling diseases that can be prevented. Boyne Research Institute works at the international, national, and community levels to ensure that babies are born as healthy as they can be.
Cancer during childhood is a tragedy for families, but the good news is that most children with cancer will be cured of their original disease. However, the complications of cancer and its treatment can be long lasting. As new types of cancer treatment are developed, survivors with these treatments need long-term follow-up to ensure their optimal health.
