Organised by MelNet and Melanoma New Zealand in partnership with the Queenstown Research Week (QRW), this is a must attend event for clinicians and scientists with a commitment to improving outcomes for patients with melanoma in New Zealand.

A specific aim of the meeting will be to develop mechanisms to ensure effective collaboration between consumers/patients, relevant scientists, pathologists, oncologists and clinical trials clinicians. We aim to share knowledge and by the end of the day have a clear pathway for patient-focussed research projects and clinical trials in New Zealand.
