About Us

The Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) was formed in 2007 by Debra and Leon Black under the auspices of the Milken Institute. Thanks to their generous ongoing support, all public donations to MRA go directly to melanoma research. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure by funding the most promising melanoma research worldwide that will accelerate progress and improve outcomes for patients and all who are at risk. MRA is the largest private funder of melanoma research. To date, MRA has awarded more than $38 million to 96 research programs to make transforming advances in the prevention, diagnosis and staging, and treatment of melanoma, including research in biological causes of carcinogenesis, skin screening, biomarkers, imaging, immunotherapy, molecularly targeted therapy, and combination therapy. MRA is pleased to have the generous support of a growing list of corporate allies in the fight against melanoma to amplify our message and garner the resources necessary to advance our mission.
