The Australia and New Zealand Trials Group (ANZMTG)

The Australia and New Zealand Melanoma Trials Group (ANZMTG) is the national cancer collaborative research group developing quality investigator-initiated clinical trials addressing unmet clinical questions in melanoma and skin cancers.
ANZMTG exists for one purpose: to support high-quality investigator-driven research that reduces the impact of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer and improves outcomes for people affected by these cancers.

Our aim is to accelerate research progress by connecting and supporting passionate clinicians to develop concepts, conduct research, and promote clinically relevant findings at a faster pace than is possible through a single institution.   
Our researchers, staff and members are united by a single core belief: that through high-quality, clinically relevant research, we can improve the lives of people with melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. Our value derives from a combination of our independent, collaborative, multidisciplinary, patient-centred approach.

We consider research questions on causes and prevention of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer and on ways to improve diagnosis, treatment and care for early and late-stage disease. Our forward-looking agenda prioritises questions that have the potential to improve patient outcomes, accelerate progress and add value to our health system. Our research ranges from registry-driven research and small pilot studies to large randomised clinical trials, each considering the potential to change practice and / or improve how care is delivered.
We are a member-based research group, membership is free and we welcome all interested researchers and clinicians to join us. We offer all aspects of protocol development, grant writing and project / data management expertise for the efficient and safe conduct of the highest quality trials to advance treatment for patients.
