Brief description Melanoma is a significant cause of cancer-related deaths in Australians. Death is usually due to metastasis of the cancer to the lungs and other organs. In this project, we will take advantage of unique mouse models to determine whether inhibition of the function of a novel protein can prevent melanoma growth and metastasis to different organs. The results of this study may lead to new therapeutic approaches to control malignant melanoma and other metastatic cancers.
