Programme and Aims
As a Consortium We Aim To:
- Find and understand genes that increase the risk of melanoma.
- Determine how those genes interact with environmental factors such ultraviolet radiation.
- Determine what the inheritance of those genes means in terms of melanoma risk and the risk of other cancers.
- Develop web based materials for patients and families addressed to risk estimation, risk reduction and gene testing.
- Develop web based educational resources.
