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.
