Julia Newton-Bishop is Professor of Dermatology at the University of Leeds. She is an internationally known clinician scientist who has made major contributions to the genetic epidemiology of melanoma and to the improvement of patient care. Julia has clarified the relationship between sun exposure and melanoma risk: establishing that sunburn is the major risk factor but producing evidence that regular moderate sun exposure is protective. She has driven the development of multidisciplinary melanoma care in Leeds. She has played key roles in clinical guideline development in the UK and Europe and chairs the National Cancer Intelligence Network Skin Cancer Group, developing procedures for standardization of clinical data collection which will drive up the quality of care.
