Mission statement

This presentation is a noncommercial site founded to provide patients and physicians with information about controversies on melanoma related topics.

The idea behind this web presentation is that scientific controversies should be made transparent to clearly identify the critical points in decision making. Transparency contributes to a rational patient care based on clinical research that is done for the right reasons.
