Are my genes contributors to melanoma?

 

Looking to learn more about genes as contributors to cancer development? This is a short clip about melanoma genetics and the PhD project I have been working on for the past 3 years as part of the MelGen European training network!

I aim to understand how the risk of developing melanoma is increased for specific families compared to the general population. The ultimate goal of this work is to provide a new insight as to how candidate inherited risk factors could contribute melanoma and improve current screening approaches for patients!
