Help Us Continue Our Research 

The Skin & Cancer Foundation Inc's research teams are conducting a number of ground-breaking studies into skin cancers and melanoma.

 

Dr Victoria Mar is leading our research on the early detection and management of cutaneous melanoma. Dr Mar is currently working to assist in improving diagnosis and mapping of lentigo maligna (a melanoma that consists of malignant cells but does not show invasive growth). Common in Australia, occurring on chronically sun-damaged skin, lentigo maligna poses surgical challenges, as it predominantly occurs on the face. Dr Mar's research involves using a hand-held confocal machine to map the extent of the lentigo maligna more accurately and improve patient outcomes.

 

Dr Alvin Chong is a internationally-renowned dermatologist, who is currently conducting studies on melanoma in transplant patients. His research has the potential to change the lives of melanoma patients throughout the world.

 

Your support will allow our research teams to continue their crucial work, so that one day melanoma will no longer be regarded as Australia's national cancer.
