Research happening right now in Manchester
We’re studying the underlying biology of melanoma to develop new treatments

Professor Richard Marais is director of our Manchester Institute. He’s also a world-leading expert in melanoma research. His research has made huge strides in our understanding of the disease.
His group is finding out how melanoma develops and progresses. They’re also seeking to understand why treatment sometimes stops working.
They will use this information find better ways to prevent and treat melanoma to save more lives.

Run for Cancer Research UK and together we will beat cancer.

The Manchester Campaign
