The Kirkwood laboratory is engaged in the study of melanoma immunobiology, and the assessment of multiple new immunomodulators in the context of trials conducted by the Hillman Melanoma Program, and the SPORE in Melanoma and Skin Cancer, as well as the International Melanoma Working Group. The study of predictive and prognostic biomarkers of melanoma complements the studies of molecular inhibitors of melanoma signaling and immunomodulatory agents given alone and in combination with one another.
