In anticipation of the outlet of the H. Lee Moffitt melanoma middle and study lnstitut~ at the campus of the college of South Florida, a world symposium, "The First Annual H. Lee Moffitt Symposium on melanoma Biology and Therapeutics" was once held in Tampa, Florida on January 20-22, 1986. during this first symposium we determined to offer a broad-based sequence of subject matters facing the key concerns within the box of melanoma. those themes ranged from the biochemistry of the melanoma cellphone to the layout of antineoplastic brokers, via tumor cellphone heterogeneity, therapy of ltuman neoplasms to immunological features of melanoma biology and tr~atment. The audio system selected represented contributors of overseas acclaim who're very energetic within the region of melanoma study and therapy. The symposium introduced jointly scien tists/physicians from six countries together with Austria, Canada, France, Hungary, West Germany, and naturally, the U.S.. The congeniality of the contributors promoted the pleasant trade of information which, it truly is was hoping, will drastically hasten the time while winning administration of human melanoma turns into regimen. destiny symposia during this sequence can be hugely targeted and should care for a unmarried side of this substantial box of melanoma study and remedy.
