Melanoma Institute Australia is a national afﬁliated network of melanoma researchers and clinicians. The majority are based at The Poche Centre in
Wollstonecraft near North Sydney – the world’s largest melanoma research and treatment facility. It is from here that our specialists pioneer new research, conduct clinical trials, and develop new treatments. MIA also has its world-class research laboratory housed within the Charles Perkins Centre, The University of Sydney. This is a translational research group headed by MIA’s Co-Medical Directors, Professors Georgina Long AO and Richard Scolyer AO.
MIA is a multi-disciplinary team – including surgeons, medical oncologists, dermatologists, pathologists, researchers, nurses, biobank specialists and psychologists – works collaboratively under the one roof, enhancing the exchange of ideas, fast tracking research and providing patients with ground-breaking melanoma treatment and support.
Approximately 2,000 new melanoma and complex skin cancer patients are referred into MIA each year, and MIA has approximately 20,000 patient visits per annum.
