Melanoma Patient Conference 2023

“What I got out of attending this conference was PRICELESS- thank you”


From this year Melanoma Focus are honored to host the Melanoma Patient Conference 2023, supporting the Founder, Imogen Cheese. The conference took place over two days (Thursday 16th/Friday 17th March) and was a huge success.

On the first evening of the conference our delegates were able to meet new people and connect with each other. Sir Chris Bryant, MP was this year’s after dinner speaker; he shared an honest account of his own melanoma experience.

“Great to meet politicians who share our experience and are using their influence to help the cause.”


On the second day of the conference our delegates heard from a range of brilliant speakers covering talks on clinical trials, TIL therapy, lymphoedema, radiography, AI technology and coping with uncertainty. We were also fortunate to hear from Michelle Richardson, a melanoma patient who very kindly shared her own inspiring melanoma story.

“Great to hear about advances in treatment and reassuring to see some people with huge intellect and practical experience working on this.”


Team Melanoma Focus feel extremely privileged to host this invaluable event and support the incredible Imogen Cheese, the Founder of the Melanoma Patient Conference. We would like to say a big thank you to our very kind sponsors and grant givers, our amazing speakers, our supportive trustees, and the brilliant Voco St. John’s hotel for making this year’s Melanoma Patient Conference possible! Most importantly a huge thank you to all delegates and their family members for attending!

Video of all the talks will be released in due course, we will announce this and share the link when they are ready for viewing.
