Professor Julia Newton-Bishop

Professor Julia Newton-Bishop works as a clinician in the Leeds Melanoma Multidisciplinary team. She has made major contributions to the genetic epidemiology of melanoma and to the improvement of cancer 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.

Julia was elected as a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences in 2014 for her work at driving the development of multidisciplinary melanoma care in Leeds.
