Professor Peter Soyer's, Prof Ian Frazer and Prof Nick Saunders skin cancer research aims to develop new technology for pain free cancer detection and treatment; progress clinical tissue banking for improved skin cancer research; and establish a data linkage network that enables information exchange between researchers and clinicians that will result in more informed skin cancer care delivery.

Associate Professor Brian Gabrielli and his group are researching melanoma, its causes, means of early detection and diagnosis where cures rate are very high, and new investigating new drugs for late stage disease where the outcome is dismal. They are working in collaboration with Professor Peter Soyer’s clinical team at the Princess Alexandra Hospital and colleagues from across Brisbane on a new non-invasive tool that will diagnose early stage melanoma. His team has developed powerful new technologies to identify new genes that are involved in early stage melanoma and which can be targeted in late stage disease to improve patient survival.
