Last month (Oct. 24-27), the Society for Melanoma Research (SMR) hosted its 15th International Congress at the Manchester Central Convention Complex in London, England. The event had nearly 1,000 healthcare professionals in attendance working toward the multidisciplinary management of melanoma/skin cancer.

A new president was selected at the conference: Dr. Georgina Long is SMR's first Australian president. She is the conjoint medical director and a professor at the Melanoma Institute Australia.

The conference brought together researchers and clinicians who are working to improve the lives of patients living with melanoma.

Attendees were looking forward to this year's TME session...

One topic that was discussed frequently was the need for more #WomeninScience...

That's a wrap for the SMR 2018 Congress! The 2019 Congress will take place in Salt Lake City, Utah.
