Prof Nick Hayward - QIMR Berghofer, Brisbane, Australia

Prof Nick Hayward talks to ecancertv at WCCS 2016 about the effect of ultraviolet light on underlying genes behind at-risk phenotypes.

He describes how the concomitant risk of melanoma from UV exposure, especially from sunbed use, can be modulated by the genes responsible for phenotypes associated with increased susceptibility.

Prof Hayward also highlights the genes responsible for telomere maintenance as a further influence on disease risk.
