About MIA

Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) is at the forefront of global advances in melanoma research and treatment. We are a non-profit organisation dedicated to preventing and curing melanoma through innovative, world-class research, treatment and education programs. Our mission is zero deaths from melanoma this decade.

Melanoma Institute Australia is a national affiliated network of melanoma researchers and clinicians. The majority are based at The Poche Centre in Wollstonecraft near North Sydney – the world’s largest melanoma research and treatment facility. It is from here that our specialists pioneer new research, conduct clinical trials, and develop new treatments.

Within The Poche Centre, a multi-disciplinary team – including surgeons, medical oncologists, dermatologists, pathologists, researchers, nurses, biobank specialists and psychologists – works collaboratively under the one roof, enhancing the exchange of ideas, fast tracking research and providing patients with ground-breaking melanoma treatment and support.

Some 2,000 melanoma patients are treated at our Poche Centre clinics each year.

MIA also has sites in Wagga Wagga to provide treatment and support for melanoma patients and their families throughout the NSW Riverina, and in Perth to support patients and their families throughout Western Australia.
