David Gallagher

Adjunct Senior Lecturer

School Of Medicine



I am a consultant medical oncologist and consultant medical geneticist at the Mater Private Hospital, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, St. James' Hospital and The National Centre for Medical Genetics in Dublin. I graduated from University College Dublin Medical School and trained on the Irish specialist registrar scheme in medical oncology. Thereafter, I completed training in both medical oncology and medical genetics between Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre and New York Presbyterian Cornell University Hospital in New York. I worked in Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre for four years before returning to Ireland in 2010. I remain actively involved in cancer research collaborations with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centre, in addition to establishing new collaborations with colleagues in Dublin. I am a fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and an active member of the Irish Clinical Oncology Research Group.
