Melanoma researchers win Australian of the Year

The joint recipients of the Australian of the Year Award, Professor Richard Scoyler AO and Professor Georgina Long AO, have been pioneered in the treatment of melanoma. As co-directors of the Melanoma Institute Australia, they have developed world-first treatments for melanoma, and other cancers more broadly, through a unique immunotherapy approach.

James Murray speaks with one of the recipients of the award, Professor Richard Scoyler AO, to learn more about his work and calls to stop the ‘glamourising’ of tanning in Australia as a leading country in melanoma.
