Professor Martin Gore CBE PhD FRCP
Melanoma Focus is very sad to learn of the sudden death of Professor Martin Gore, who died on 10 January. His achievements as an oncologist in the field of melanoma were supreme and he will be greatly missed by his friends and colleagues.Professor Paul Lorigan, chairman of Melanoma Focus, said: ‘Martin was deeply respected and admired by all who worked with him during his long career. His death is an enormous loss to the cause of melanoma and the other areas of medicine in which he was involved’.This charity is particularly grateful to Professor Gore for his inspirational chairmanship of our ano-uro-genital mucosal melanoma guideline project, completed during 2018 in record time, which will make an enormous contribution to understanding and treating this rare form of the disease.Follow this link for information about the guideline group Professor Gore chaired.
