The leader of GenoMEL’s INSERM group, Dr. Florence Demenais, recently gave a lecture entitled, New advances in the genetics of melanoma: how can it contribute to personalized medicine? The lecture can be viewed online at the videolectures.net website.
XploreHealth, a scientific ‘portal’ financed by the European Union, has produced a module concerning melanoma. The ‘Skin Cancer Exposed’ module features interviews with GenoMEL members and seeks to engage citizens, patients, schoolchildren and teachers.
The 2012 meeting will take place in Leiden, the Netherlands 18-20 June. The meeting is open to GenoMEL members and invited guests. The registration page is now available.
The hunt for high and low risk melanoma genes
Dr. Peter Kanetsky, from GenoMEL’s group in Pennsylvania, gave a talk late last year to students, researchers and clinicians at the University of Wisconsin about GenoMEL’s genetic research. The talk is available as a webcast.
