Oncogenic Signaling in Uveal Melanoma
Uveal melanoma (UM) is the most common eye cancer in adults, affecting approximately 6-7 individuals per million each year in Australia. The two components of this project will allow understanding of oncogenic signaling pathway in UM using pre-clinical models and mechanisms of resistance to therapy from translational research.
