Online Survey Melanoma Research
May 1, 2007, Volume 53, No. 32

Penn researchers who are part of GenoMEL, an international research consortium coordinated by the University of Leeds, are asking people about what they do in the sun and what they think about skin cancer. Completing the online survey takes between 20 to 30 minutes and consists of multiple-choice questions. There is an option to request information about how you can reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. The questionnaire will be available over the next six months at www.genomel.org. GenoMEL’s website will also carry regular updates on the progress of the research.  The final results will help develop more effective skin cancer prevention strategies and inform GenoMEL’s internet-based melanoma education packages.
