      Oh I wish I had a good contribution but I’ve not discovered anything that’s really amazing yet. Although I have only been researching for a year so give me some time!

      I hope I can contribute something great in years to come #Dream!

      So far, I have helped find a bunch of new genes involved in melanoma. These include genes called TFG, MAP3K5, MAP3K9 and a bunch of others which I can’t talk about until they are published. I have also developed a mutation panel that can be used to determine the best treatment strategy for patients with melanoma.
