Fund raising success

Geoff Walker recently completed Ironman France and asked for sponsorship in memory of a dear friend, Bernie Jackson, who died from melanoma earlier this year. The challenge involved over 140 miles of swimming, biking and running and Geoff has raised over £2,000 to support GenoMEL’s research. Donations are still being accepted at  JustGiving.com Congratulations to Geoff and thank you to all his sponsors.

New GenoMEL paper in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology

GenoMEL

A GenoMEL study of somatic BRAF and NRAS mutations in familial melanomas with known germline CDKN2A status has been published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. This study set out to investigate whether inheriting a CDKN2Amutation influences the mutations found within the actual tumour. Led by researchers in Sweden, it involved colleagues from more than eight different research groups and samples from over 100 patients.
