In February 2018, theMelanomaResearch Foundation and the Moffitt Cancer Center hosted the Second Summit onMelanomaCentral Nervous System (CNS) Metastases in Tampa, Florida. In this white paper we outline the current status of basic science, translational and clinical research into melanoma brain metastasis development and therapeutic management. We further outline the important challenges that remain for the field and the critical barriers that need to be overcome for continued progress to be made in this clinically difficult area.
