- Implementation of risk-stratified melanoma surveillance at major melanoma treatment centres
- Cost-effectiveness evaluation of risk-stratified approaches to melanoma screening and surveillance
- Risk prediction modelling
- Qualitative research with multiple stakeholders (including patients, doctors, policy-makers) about new approaches to skin cancer prevention and early detection.
