Skin cancer studies around the world will be brought together to help people understand how at risk they from the disease thanks to a Leeds-led consortium which has been awarded over £7m of funding.
Led by Leeds dermatologist Professor Julia Newton-Bishop, the international Genomel consortium brings together teams from around the world who are working on the genetics of melanoma and identifying who is prone to developing the cancer.
The funding from the European Union Framework 6 programme will support the work on the cancers causes but also be used to develop a website where anyone can look log in and look up how at risk they are from melanoma. The website will also include advice on the disease, what to look for and how it is treated. Melanoma is one of the most serious forms of skin cancer and accounts for 3% of cancer cases diagnosed in the UK every year.
