The Charles Institute
The City of Dublin Skin and Cancer Hospital Charity in partnership with University College Dublin founded the Charles Institute, named after the founder of the Hospital, on the campus of U.C.D. This centre of research excellence, was officially launched by Professor Hugh Brady, President of UCD, and Mr. Peter O’Flanagan, Chairman of the Charity on 19th September 2011.
The Irish Skin Foundation
To extend the ethos of translational medicine from the research laboratories to the wider community with skin disease by “bringing science to society“, the Charity established the Irish Skin Foundation, which will be supported financially by the Charity during its formative years. The ISF held its inaugural meeting on 19th January 2011.
The Charles Centre for Dermatology
To further facilitate the ‘bench-to-bedside’ maxim of translational medicine, the Charity has provided funding to enable the establishment of the Charles Centre for the treatment of patients with skin disease at St. Vincent’s University Hospital, which will open in 2012. The Charles Centre for Dermatology has accommodated the majority of patients who formerly attended the old hospital on Hume Street.
