Drug screen to identify therapeutic targets for acral lentiginous melanoma

Project Details


This project involves the large scale drug screen for therapeutic targets for acral lentiginous melanoma, a rare subtype of melanoma that occurs on the soles of the feet/palms of the hands/under finger nails. Currently there are no effective therapeutic strategies for this subtype of melanoma. This screening and follow-up project is therefore aiming to identify vulnerabilities and associated targets for acral melanoma.
