Welcome to the European Journal of Cancer’s Advances in Melanoma Resource Centre. The Resource Centre, edited by Prof. Reinhard Dummer, Dr. Paolo Ascierto and Dr. James Larkin, will provide you with the latest research on melanoma, including a selection of original research and review articles from some of the world’s leading journals, case studies, and other educational material. New articles will be added to the Resource Centre regularly and are openly available to our readers.
What is a Resource Centre?
A Resource Centre is a freely accessible platform, designed for healthcare professionals, that aims to increase clinical knowledge in a specific medical specialty by disseminating important new research and clinical developments more broadly. Resource Centres are all independently editorially controlled, provided in collaboration with established medical journals, hosted and managed by Elsevier, and funded by educational grants from societies and other organizations, such as medical or pharmaceutical companies.
