Melanoma Research Alliance – General RFP

September 4, 2019 by


The Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) announces a Request for Proposals (RFP) soliciting high-impact pre-clinical, translational, and early clinical research from scientists and clinicians around the world. The RFP calls for ideas that have the potential to lead to near-term clinical application in melanoma prevention, detection, diagnosis, staging, and treatment. Proposals will be accepted for Pilot, Team Science, Young Investigator, and Mid-Career Awards.


Melanoma is a leading cause of new cancers, and more effective options for patients and those at risk are urgently needed. Recent scientific and clinical advances have provided new hope, but much work remains to be done to end suffering and death from melanoma.
