Yorkshire Specialist Register of Cancer in Children and Young People

Scientific Advisory Group

The YSRCCYP’s Scientific Advisory Group was established in March 2006 and meets once per year. Originally chaired by Professor David Forman, the scientific advisory group is now chaired by Dr Richard McNally (Newcastle), an esteemed epidemiologist who brings an independent perspective to the work in his role as the Northern Region Young Person’s Malignant Disease Register.
