Abstract: Malignant melanoma is the most aggressive form of skin cancer and incidence rates are on the rise. Despite recent improvements in treatment options, the disease still remains lethal. Which calls for expedited solutions. In this thesis I will discuss three studies, which have not only contributed new knowledge to the research community but also led to development of tools used in cancer research. In the first paper we developed a platform of patient-derived xenografts (PDXes) from metastat... more
