Laboratory Projects

A research lab with active experiments

Melanoma genetics

Learn about genetics-based research in the Leachman-Cassidy Lab, including "Genetic testing and photoprotective behavior" and "Melanoma cohort development and genome-wide association analyses".

Visit the Melanoma Genetics page.

Melanoma chemoprevention

Learn about research on melanoma chemoprevention, including working to understanding the genetic basis of susceptibility to melanoma and response to chemopreventive agents, and identifying and applying agents that could alleviate the mutagenic effects of UV-induced oxidative stress in order to prevent melanoma.

Melanoma Tissue Bank Consortium

The Melanoma Tissue Bank Consortium aims to collect well-annotated samples, which will be available to researchers anywhere in the world, to help to answer critical research questions related to melanoma epidemiology, etiology, and treatment.
