Scientific Meetings

The MRF convenes various scientific meetings each year either in response to an unmet need, as designated by our Scientific Advisory Committee (SAC) or to further the CURE OMMRFBC, and/or MRF Scientific Initiatives.

Upcoming Meetings

  • 10th Annual CURE OM Global Science Meeting: held in conjunction with the Society for Melanoma Research Congress! Each year the MRF hosts a global science meeting at SMR to facilitate interdisciplinary and innovative collaboration focused on finding effective treatments and, ultimately, a cure for ocular melanoma. This year’s virtual meeting will be held Thursday, October 28, 2021
  • Melanoma Brain Metastases Summit 3.0: to build upon the momentum of the first two summits, a third summit will be held to focus on four key areas – preclinical studies/ models, characterization of risk for CNS disease including tumor microenvironment and metabolism, clinical care and trials, and leptomeningeal disease.
