The NCRI Teenage and Young Adult (TYA) and Germ Cell Tumours (GCT) 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 teenage and young adult and germ cell tumours. The group works closely with clinical research networks, funders and researchers to develop research to improve outcomes for teenage and young adult and germ cell tumour patients.
The NCRI TYA & GCT Group consists of an executive group, chaired by Professor Dan Stark, which provides oversight of the research landscape and proactively identifies opportunities for the group. The NCRI TYA & GCT Group also has several subgroups that develop research in areas of strategic need.
