Three of the world’s top 10 melanoma experts are from MIA, including both our Co-Medical Directors Professor Georgina Long AO and Professor Richard Scolyer and our former Medical Director Professor John Thompson AO. Special congratulations also to A/Prof Alex Menzies and A/Prof Matteo Carlino who both feature notably in the world rankings.
In the Australian rankings, Professors Long and Scolyer are ranked as the top two melanoma experts, with eight MIA clinicians and researchers named in the top 10, and 13 in the top 20.
The expertscape rankings are based on articles published since 2010.
