Associate Professor Richard Cohn was appointed a Clinical Research Associate at Children’s Cancer Institute in 1999, following the decision to expand the research capabilities of the existing long-term follow-up clinic in the Centre for Children's Cancer and Blood Disorders (CCCBD) at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick. This move marked the creation of the Long Term Follow-up Project at Children’s Cancer Institute, a project dedicated to investigating the late effects of therapy for childhood cancer in long-term survivors. Richard has been a Consultant Paediatric Haematologist/Oncologist at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick since 1997, having moved to Australia from South Africa.

He is Head of Clinical Oncology within the CCCBD and is Associate Professor in the School of Women’s and Children’s Health at UNSW Sydney. He has authored more than 70 publications in the field of paediatrics and oncology. In addition to his interest in the long-term sequelae of childhood cancer treatment, Richard has a special interest in childhood brain tumours and is Chairman of the Brain Tumour Collaborative at Sydney Children's Hospital, Randwick.
