The MRF is committed to supporting a broad scientific agenda and researchers at every career stage from established investigators and multidisciplinary teams to young medical students who are exploring an interest in melanoma science. Over more than two decades, the MRF and its supporters have provided over $17 million in melanoma research funding, including grants to 57 medical students studying at 39 institutions.
