Practice-changing melanoma and skin cancer treatments come from clinical trials.
Melanoma and Skin Cancer Trials (MASC Trials) is Australia and New Zealand’s collaborative trials group specialising in investigator-initiated melanoma and skin cancer research. Working with leading researchers and institutions locally and around the globe, MASC Trials develops, conducts, and publishes research and clinical trials that improve how we diagnose and treat melanoma and skin cancer.
Clinical trials save lives - donate today
Melanoma and skin cancer do not discriminate. These cancers affect young and old, men and women, in big cities and in small towns.
Donate now and support our most promising researchers to find cures for melanoma and skin cancers, and give survivors long and healthy lives.
What We Do
MASC Trials brings together a powerful network of almost 2,000 professionals who represent the many disciplines critical to our work – oncologists, surgeons, radiation specialists, nurses, allied health professionals, health economists, statisticians, research scientists, clinical research associates, data managers, patient advocates and others.
With expert support from our Advisories and our trials staff, MASC Trials leads and designs research and clinical trial development, and provides project management for multicentre, national and international collaborations.
Active Trials Closed for Recruitment
Australia and The Netherlands have an alarming statistic in common – melanoma is in their top five most diagnosed cancers. Clinical teams from both countries are now contributing to the international MelMarT-II trial.
A community fundraising campaign has donated $100,000 to a clinical trial investigating melanoma that has spread to the brain.
