  • Identifying specific biomarkers which may help to assess which patients with primary melanoma are at risk of metastatic disease and will benefit from adjuvant and/or neo-adjuvant therapies.
  • Advancing non-T cell-based immunotherapy approaches and other approaches examining the Tumor Microenvironment (TME).
  • Discovering novel effective therapies by repurposing drugs from other applications.
  • Interrogating melanoma preclinical models with functional genomics and other technologies to identify new targets.
  • Dissecting the molecular mechanisms of melanoma metastasis, with an emphasis on brain metastasis and leptomeningeal disease.
