The ASSC is a joint collaboration of skin and skin cancer researchers at The University of Queensland and QIMR Berghofer Medical Research Institute. The Genetics Summit follows the success of previous ASSC Summits: the Sunscreen Summit in March 2018, which achieved revisions to sunscreen policy in Australia and New Zealand; the Melanoma Screening Summit in 2019, developed a new consensus statement regarding the approach needed for national screening for melanoma; and the Sun Exposure Summit, in 2021.
