A new target for melanoma treatment 

There is currently no curative treatment for melanoma once the disease spreads beyond the original site. A new protein is emerging as an important sensor of cellular stress that can mediate both the survival and death of cells.  The role of this protein in the survival of melanoma cells and its potential as a therapeutic target will be investigated in this study.
