Australasia’s premier ocular melanoma cross-disciplinary meeting
Building on the previously highly successful Australasian Ocular Melanoma Alliance (AOMA) summits, the 4th AOMA Summit will bring together healthcare professionals, researchers and consumers in ocular melanoma to share the latest research and facilitate national and international collaborations for this rare, debilitating and often devastating cancer.
This free virtual event will include a scientific program and presentations focused on consumer and advocate involvement.
The diverse program will cover laboratory and translational research, clinical trials and registries, diagnosis and clinical management, updates on current and future treatment options, as well as consumer and clinician discussion panels.
Our protocol paper for the IMAGE trial investigating early detection using #melanoma surveillance photography is now published in @BioMedCentral.
