In addition, socioeconomic features, occupation, access to health, and preventive measures, latitude have been demonstrated to impact the morbidity of melanoma (Helgadottir et al, 2018). Shared success and progress of the pigment cell research community in the understanding of cellular and immunological homeostasis of pigment cells but also clinical challenges and hurdles in the treatment of melanoma and dermatological disorders continue to drive further research activities. Investigators in the pigment cell research community have diverse but complementary backgrounds. The cross-disciplinary nature of the field is unique, unified around the passion of understanding normal pigmentation and benign or malignant pigmentary diseases (Filipp et al, 2018).
