In addition, every day, patients who attend Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) and our partner organisations donate something incredibly special to our research: their tissue samples and clinical records. Without these generous donations to our Biospecimen Bank and Melanoma Research Database, we simply couldn’t do the ground-breaking research that we’re doing.
So all our patients deserve a heartfelt thank you for helping to make a difference to the lives of future melanoma patients.
Melanoma Research Database
MIA’s Research Database was established in the 1960s. Known as MRD2, it drives development of new clinical trials and treatment pathways, and supports national and international scientiﬁc collaboration and research projects. MRD2 contains the records of more than 50,000 patients and provides data for more than 80 research projects per year.
