Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer. About 22,000 people each year are diagnosed with melanoma in the United States alone. Finding ways to catch melanoma earlier for treatment is essential.

A biomarker is an indicator that can be found in blood, stool, urine or other bodily fluids and tissues that may show certain diseases. If accurate, biomarkers can be found for diseases, such as cancer, and could lead to earlier and less invasive discovery. The purpose of this opportunity is to study blood samples to detect biomarkers that could be used to improve melanoma detection.
