MRF Breakthrough Consortium

Accelerating Research and Treatment Development

Responding to a need for greater investigation into the urgent need for combination treatments, the MRF convened a meeting of leading doctors and researchers from melanoma centers of excellence across the United States. This meeting led to the creation of the MRF Breakthrough Consortium (MRFBC) in 2010.

The Consortium institutions have a demonstrated track record of receiving NIH/peer-reviewed funding for multidisciplinary research in melanoma, publications in major medical journals, presentations at the major cancer and melanoma meetings, clinical trial expertise and patient care.
