Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends (PASYKAF), a non governmental, not-for-profit organization, is honored to host the Evolutionary Melanoma Conference in Cyprus from 8-9 May 2020. It will be held under the auspices of the First Lady of the Republic of Cyprus, the Ministry of Health and other multiple Professional Bodies.

We are proud to announce that this prestigious event is being held in Limassol, one of Cyprus’ coastal cities which has a shoreline sweeping along beautiful stretches of beaches. Limassol, the cosmopolitan hub of the island, is known for its effortless blend of modern sophistication and its ancient past.

The Conference, which will begin by focusing on orbital melanoma for much of the Friday afternoon, will also offer sessions on major breakthroughs and advances in Cutaneous Melanoma and will include epidemiology, prevention, histopathology, molecular pathology, staging and challenges in surgery, as well as current advances in immunotherapy and targeted therapies, the benefits of local therapy and the experiences of patients who live beyond the disease.

Outstanding health professionals from around the world are being invited to participate in the roles of chairs, co-chairs, and speakers. There will be many learning opportunities which will provide the necessary tools needed to enhance and personalize the care offered to patients by both experienced and young clinicians, as well as nurses and other allied professionals.

We are confident that our scientific program, together with our well known Cyprus hospitality, will make the Evolutionary Melanoma Conference a memorable event and we hope to leave a mark for the future! We look forward to welcoming you all to Limassol!

Dr. Simon Malas
Conference Chair
