Melanoma Institute Australia

Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) is dedicated to preventing and curing melanoma through innovative world-class research, treatment and education programs.

As the largest centre in the world focused exclusively on melanoma, we collaborate nationally and internationally to accelerate the understanding of , and new treatments for melanoma.

• Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world

• Melanoma is the most common cancer in 15-39 year olds

• Melanoma is the most common cause of cancer deaths in 20-39 year olds

• Incidence of people over 60 is also very high and increasing.

Over the past five years in particular, MIA has made incredible progress through our research. For example, over 30 clinical trials have been conducted each year investigating new treatments and new combination of treatments which have been able to significantly increase survival rates for people with advanced melanoma (where it has spread to other organs) A number of our advanced melanoma patients are now off all treatments and remain disease-free.

Making a gift donation to MIA can help drive research to end melanoma for future generations, because no-one should die from melanoma.
