Objectives: First results on integrated omics profiling of melanoma patients, in particular primary and metastasized skin cancer patients, are promising and seem to generate interesting biomarkers with therapeutic potential. The main aim of this project is to develop a patient stratification strategy based on multi-omics data bases and a tool that enables a reliable classification of clinically relevant disease subtypes via advanced pattern recognition that can be readily translated to clinic (e.g., dermatology). Day-to-day problems in the clinic focusing on getting the right drug into the right melanoma patient are taken as case study. To achieve our goals, we will expand on previous work performed by the department of bioinformatics, pathology, clinical genetics and dermatology.
