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

  • MRF Breakthrough Consortium (MRFBC) Investigator Meeting: held in conjunction with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) annual meeting, the MRFBC meeting will convene melanoma investigators from each of the consortium sites to discuss ongoing initiatives, clinical trials, and correlative science, while exploring opportunities to collaborate.
  • 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.
