This virtual session aims to draw attention to non-melanoma skin cancers (NMSC), their current treatment and future opportunities in research. The session will provide an overview of the current incidence of non-melanoma skin cancer and the increased burden on the national health care system.

It will highlight current challenges and opportunities, and offer suggestions on future areas of development and possible breakthroughs in research.

By the end of the session, participants will have a better understanding of the status quo and future direction of this area of research.
