National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins and U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor attended the 6th Melanoma Research Alliance (MRA) Scientific Retreat in Washington. The MRA, founded in 2007 by Debra and Leon Black in conjunction with Mike and the Milken Institute, is the largest private funder of melanoma research, having awarded $38 million to 96 research programs to make transforming advances in the prevention, diagnosis and staging, and treatment of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. Cantor and Collins, who both attended the Celebration of Science in 2012, voiced their support of continued funding for medical and scientific research.
