This Cambridge-based national charity was formed by the amalgamation of the former Melanoma Study Group, an educational charity serving melanoma professionals, with the previous Melanoma Focus, a research-based charity. By bringing together their medical and scientific education activities, as well as their fundraising capabilities, we aim to promote the professional interests of clinicians, scientists and nurses while informing patients, their carers and the general public about this important and potentially devastating disease.

The charity seeks clinicians and nurses from relevant specialties, as well as patient advocates, to join a group led by Professor Kevin Harrington to work on guidance for this rare form of melanoma.
