The NCRI Lymphoma Group brings together clinicians, scientists and patients, carers and others affected by cancer (also known as ‘consumers’), amongst many others, to coordinate the development of a strategic portfolio of research within the field of lymphoma. The group works closely with clinical research networks, funders and researchers to develop research to improve outcomes for lymphoma patients.  

The NCRI Lymphoma Group consists of an executive group, chaired by Professor Andrew Pettittwhich provides oversight of the research landscape and proactively identifies opportunities for the group. The NCRI Lymphoma Group also has several subgroups that develop research in areas of strategic need. Members are competitively recruited to the executive group and subgroups twice a year.
