2015 Stocktake of Melanoma-Related Research in New Zealand

In 2015 MelNet undertook a stocktake of melanoma-related research in New Zealand, including epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care, genetics, tumour biology, etc.  Researchers and clinicians identified the need for the stocktake as a vital first step in enabling MelNet to promote collaboration and coordination of such activities, with a view to establishing an integrated approach to melanoma translational research in New Zealand.

The report provides a useful snapshot in time of New Zealand researchers and the research they are conducting into the control or understanding of melanoma.   The report includes:

  • Both broad and detailed categories of research
  • Sources of funding
  • Organisations/institutions of researchers
  • Occupation of researchers.
