Programs & Initiatives for Rare Melanoma Subtypes

The MRF is committed to research, education and advocacy across all types of melanoma, including ocular, mucosal and pediatric melanoma.

Created in 2011, CURE OM (Community United for Research and Education of Ocular Melanoma) accelerates research and treatments focused on the most common malignant tumor of the eye. In addition, the MRF has created initiatives that focus on rare melanoma subsets such as pediatric and mucosal melanoma, as well as hosting various scientific and educational meetings.

The MRF works tirelessly in establishing important partnerships with leading research organizations in order to advance the research and science of melanoma.
