Yes, we all have skin in this game. Melanoma is an aggressive form of skin cancer, and your risk for developing melanoma is growing. Unlike many cancers, the incidence of melanoma has doubled in the past 30 years in the United States, despite better detection and a greater awareness of the dangers of sun and ultraviolet ray exposure.
This is a disease in desperate need of new therapeutic options, and The Wistar Institute Melanoma Research Center is devoted to advancing melanoma medicine.
