Summaries of Scientific Papers

Melanoma Focus now offers summaries of recent reports published in scientific journals. The lay versions are intended for patients and members of the public, as well as for healthcare professionals who need a quick overview of the subject. The technical summaries, posted under Members’ Portal, give in-depth versions of the same papers and are intended for those working in the melanoma field.

We are grateful to Dr Matt Tomlinson, Dr Alberto Fusi and Dr Sam Bowyer for their work on producing these synopses. We hope to add a new topic to this collection at regular intervals.
