Teresa Young BSc
Having graduated with a degree in Medicinal Chemistry, Teresa spent ten years setting up a small clinical trials unit at the Middlesex Hospital in central London and was a founder member of the British Oncology Data Manager’s Association (the society has now disbanded as their role has been taken on by National Cancer Research Network (NCRN)).
Teresa joined the LJMC as Research Co-ordinator in 1992. She is involved in a number of studies evaluating the use of complementary therapies for a variety of symptoms as well as distress and wellbeing in cancer patients.
As Cancer Survivorship Lead for MVCC, Teresa has been involved in projects to improve patient self-management on discharge and a recent fatigue audit which demonstrated poor staff awareness of existing resources and the potential benefits of exercise.
Teresa is an active member of the EORTC Quality of Life Study Group and has expertise in developing quality of life measures and choosing outcome measures for studies. She is currently a member of the NCRN Supportive & Palliative Care Group.
