Event Overview
Welcome message:

Dear Colleague,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to join us for Perspectives in Melanoma XVIII on 19-20 September 2014 in Dublin, Ireland.

This conference represents our 18th in this series of premier forums for discussion of the latest advances in melanoma research. We have utilized interactive programming and will host exciting new presentations by the world’s leading investigators on new screening and staging modalities, emerging new management approaches, and clinical trial updates.

Our thought leaders and clinical investigators in melanoma will lead discussion of current and controversial topics in the field and new scientific ideas from the bench to the clinic. As an attendee, you can expect to update your knowledge in the field, confirm your current practices, and receive valuable take-home information.

This is a valuable opportunity to interact with colleagues and network with the diverse interdisciplinary mix of dermatologic, surgical, and medical oncologists as well as other researchers and clinicians who will join us for this rewarding meeting.
