How we operate
Presentation of LYSA
LYSA is governed by a Steering Committee, elected by all members of the General Assembly, which also appoints its Officers and the President.
Moreover, the Steering Committee nominates a Scientific Advisory Committee that is responsible for elaborating and managing scientific projects. This committee takes advice from the Programmes and Protocols Committees.
LYSA’s scientific activities are funded by contributions, donations, and support of the French National Cancer Institute (INCa). The LYSA subsidy fund for research on lymphoma will soon provide financial support to research on lymphoma, offering advantageous fiscal conditions. Protocols and research programmes are supported by contracts with institutional or industrial partners. The accounts are monitored by chartered accountants and annually subjected to the approval of the General Assembly, after being audited by the statutory auditor.
