The Ocular Melanoma Foundation (OMF) is the leading resource for eye cancer research funding and patient/caregiver support. OMF has raised over a million dollars in its quest to #SEEACURE for eye cancer and every year hosts the largest gathering of OM patients in the world.

Announcements

  • OMF announced the recipient of the 2018 AACR-Ocular Melanoma Foundation Career Development Award. This $150,000, two-year grant has been awarded to Dr. Alison Skalet, MD, PhD of Oregon Health and Science University. Dr. Skalet's research will explore if hybrid circulating tumor cells can predict the risk of metastasis and eliminate the need for an invasive biopsy. If successful, this project will be the first step in creating a minimal-risk, non-invasive, and repeatable "liquid biopsy" for patients with uveal melanoma. > Read the full press release
