mission & vision

Access to prevention, early detection and effective treatment in Melanoma across Europe.

our team

My husband's Melanoma diagnosis did not only change the life of our family forever but also my view on medicine and clinical research. We got a lot of support from others and while it will be too late for him, there will hopefully be a day when people like him will have a chance!

2011 - M-icab, the Melanoma Independent Community Advisory Board, is founded as an ECPC pilot project upon the initiative of Patricia Garcia- Prieto and Quentin Van Daele.

2013 - M-icab increasingly assumes functions outside advisory board activities and the need for a better connection of Melanoma advocates in Europe becomes apparent.
