The Melanoma Research Alliance held its Ninth Annual Scientific Retreat on February 13-15, 2017 in Washington, DC. The MRA retreat is an invitation-only event and has become one of the most vital gatherings of the stakeholders in the field of melanoma research, fostering collaboration by facilitating early sharing of data in a highly interactive forum.  

Nearly 300 registrants included leading scientists from the United States and abroad, as well as senior leadership from non-profit foundations, government agencies, industry, and other like-minded organizations. Leading experts from across the melanoma research continuum engaged in discussions of cutting-edge research results from MRA-funded programs as well as on topics of special interest.

MRA is grateful to its sponsors for their generous financial and in-kind support of the 2017 Retreat. For more information on sponsoring the 2018 Tenth Annual Scientific Retreat, please contact Scientific Program Manager Tasheema Prince.
