Our Research

World’s leading melanoma research and treatment centre

As the world’s leading melanoma research and treatment centre, research is what distinguishes Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) from a regular oncology clinic.

Our Melanoma Research Database is the largest in the world, with just under 40,000 patient records dating back to 1957 when MIA was known as the Sydney Melanoma Unit.

Since that time, the Institute has expanded its research assets to include a Biospecimen Bank, as well as data gathered from extensive Clinical Trials.

These assets are made available to researchers around the world to gain a better understanding of the causes, development, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma.
