The Epidemiology and Cancer Statistics Group (ECSG) is a multi-disciplinary team of researchers based in the Department of Health Sciences at the University of York. Major research themes include cancer epidemiology, in particular the determinants, prognosis and treatment of haematological malignancy, as well as cancer in children and young adults.

ECSG researchers work in partnership with clinical and laboratory based colleagues across the University, as well as the Haematological Malignancy Research Network and the Haematological Malignancy Diagnostic Service (HMDS) based at St James's Institute of Oncology, Leeds.

In addition to research, an important part of the ECSG's work is concerned with the provision of high quality information about haematological malignancy to clinicians and researchers, as well as to the participants in their various studies and members of the public.
