Acquired resistance to CDK4 inhibition in melanoma
This project will work out how melanomas escape from the effects of a new treatment for melanoma that stops tumours from growing. Knowing how the tumour cell changes to survive drug treatment will allow us to design new treatments that will avoid the escape mechanism, providing long-term survival for patients.
