MyMelanoma Research Project is a project that is being developed by Leeds University Research (my former) dermatologist, Prof Julia Newton Bishop, Oxford Oncologist Prof Mark Middleton and two melanoma patients, Sean Guinness & Imogen Cheese, the founder of the annual Melanoma Patient Conference.
The project is to effectively collect patients samples and data internationally to create the largest global cohort of Melanoma patients information over time.
The information collected will be used to drive forward research and help our scientists & experts better understand Melanoma & the lifestyle impacts upon our diagnosis, progression & survival chances.
We need the feedback of as many patients as possible at this time in order for the project to move from concept to reality with ethics & fundraising requiring a large number of patients opinions on the study & our aims.
If you are currently, or have been, a melanoma patient and would like to take part or to learn further information about the project, please email Imogen Cheese at email@example.com & she will happily help answer questions or provide additional information.
As a melanoma patient over the last 24 years (Stage 1 in 1996 and then Stage 3 since 2009) I am taking part in this project so it will help melanoma patients in the future. I hope that you are as excited about the potential of this project as I am! I am really hoping that, with all your help, we can get well over the minimum 100 patients survey responses we need to move to the next stage!
