- Developing treatment strategies for difficult-to-treat melanoma subtypes such as acral, mucosal, or uveal melanoma, and/or non-BRAF mutant melanomas including NRAS and NF1 mutants;
- Uncovering novel mechanisms of melanoma initiation and progression in order to improve prevention and early detection strategies, develop early treatment approaches such as adjuvant and neoadjuvant therapies, and identify prognostic biomarkers of high-risk disease/precursor lesions; and
- Developing strategies to prevent and/or treat metastatic disease, including in transit and/or satellite metastases, and leptomeningeal disease. Eligibility - Applicants must be a senior investigator, past the initial four years of their first academic faculty appointment. - Applicants must hold a full-time faculty appointment at the level of Assistant Professor (or equivalent) or above.
