Oncology / Immunology / Melanoma Research Laboratory
Melanoma is a major health issue in Australia. It is the fourth most common cancer in males and the third in females in NSW. It also has a heavy impact on the lives of young Australians, because it is the most common cancer in males aged 25-54 years and in females aged 15-29. The Melanoma Research Laboratory (Oncology and Immunology Unit) focus on translational melanoma research with an overall aim to overcome resistance of metastatic melanoma to treatment.
The Melanoma Research Laboratory was originally founded under the auspices of the Calvary Mater Newcastle. Although it has recently been relocated to the University of Newcastle, Calvary Mater Newcastle is still strongly supportive of the world renowned research being conducted in this laboratory, and is proud to maintain associations with this group.
