Event description

Description

Professionals from all cancer disciplines are invited to join Professor McArthur and the VCCC Melanoma and Skin Cancer Strategy Group for The Pitch.

In the inaugural VCCC Cancer Grand Challenge, our Melanoma Research & Education Lead (and incoming Exec Director) Professor Grant McArthur and the VCCC Melanoma and Skin Cancer Strategy Group, have challenged three multi-institution teams of melanoma experts to develop a collaborative research project of international significance.

The teams’ ideas will be pitched in a 20 minute presentation at a unique open clinical forum. Guided by Professor McArthur and facilitator, Liz Mullins, the audience will be invited to question, challenge and discuss the proposed projects. Ultimately, one project will be selected to progress as the inaugural VCCC Cancer Grand Challenge: Melanoma Project.

The pitches:

Thin melanomas with poor outcomes
Champion: Victoria Mar, Skin & Cancer Foundation and The Alfred Hospital

Treatment of brain metastases of melanoma
Champion: Mark Shackleton, Peter Mac

Personalised/risk stratified follow up for those with previous melanoma diagnosis
Champion: David Gyorki, Peter Mac/Austin Health, and Andreas Behren, Austin Health/Olivia Newton John Cancer Research Institute
