Mucosal Melanoma Model Catalog
To facilitate preclinical research focused on mucosal melanoma, MRA is building the Mucosal Melanoma Model Catalog composed of cell lines and patient derived xenograft (PDX) models from various institutions worldwide. The catalog will serve as a launching pad to connect researchers who want to study mucosal melanoma – with researchers who have created models that they would like to share. We hope the information in this catalog fosters collaboration among research labs and synergistic efforts to advance our knowledge of mucosal melanoma and ultimately help find better treatments for these patients.
You can navigate through Tableau (below) to find mucosal models with specific genomic mutations. MRA’s Mucosal Melanoma Model Catalog provides additional basic information on each model including demographics, clinical characteristics, and a more detailed oncogenomic profile, with contact information and details on how to access, grow and maintain each model. Detailed genomic and clinical information on all available mucosal models with corresponding contact information is available here.
MRA aims to keep updating the list of mucosal melanoma models as they become available.
