Since 2005 the Framework Six Programme (FP6) of the European Commission supported GenoMEL’s research. During this period GenoMEL published 80 scientific papers and greatly expanded this website with presentations, tutorials, podcasts, pictures and links.

The FP6 grant has come to an end. GenoMEL’s research programme continues with support from various national funding agencies and charities. However, maintaining the website at its current standard will take considerable effort and money.

If you would like to make a donation to help support this website and the organisation of GenoMEL, and our melanoma research at the University of Leeds in general, please visit


Any donations will go to a Leeds Teaching Hospitals Charitable Foundation account that supports Professor Newton Bishop’s melanoma research programme, including this website.

Thank you for your help.
