In collaboration with the Queensland Institute of Medical Research and the Institute of Molecular Biology, the Dermatology Research Centre at the Princess Alexandra Hospital is investigating the association between the physical structure of moles and genes that determine pigmentation, such as skin, hair, and eye colour. This will be the first study of its kind to combine information on the structure of moles with genetic information to identify genes that may be involved with the development of melanoma.
