The Melanoma Research Alliance hosted its Second Annual Scientific Retreat in Las Vegas, February 24-26, 2010. The retreat was attended by over 130 of the leading melanoma scientists from the United States and abroad, as well as senior leadership from nonprofit foundations, government agencies, industry, and other like-minded organizations. MRA's annual retreat is a crucial component of our mission to provide a unique and interactive forum to share data early, to identify future directions, to discuss ideas, and to look for synergies and partnerships. The retreat was held at a critical time in the field of melanoma research - a time when the urgency of the problem continues to grow and the opportunities for progress toward solutions are great.
