Clinical Trials

Translating skin and skin cancer research through clinical trials is critical in developing new methodologies of detection and diagnosis, effective treatments and patient support.

The ASSC, through the University of Queensland and QIMR Berghofer, has an effective research network for developing and supporting studies into advances in the prevention and early detection of skin cancer and the treatment of melanoma and skin diseases.

There are a number of studies and research papers underway, and these often require participants to assist.

Current trials

  • 3D QMelanoma Targeted early detection of melanoma utilising a 3D teledermatology  network
    • The primary aim of the 3D QMelanoma project is to improve early detection of melanoma in high risk Queenslanders. The team has access to the largest skin cancer study in Australia, QSkin, and will recruit high risk participants to conduct a nested feasibility study of an innovative targeted screening program incorporating 3D total body photography.
    • There is a strict inclusion criteria for this trial: Please contact soms.dermatology@uq.edu.au for more information.
