Speaker: Enrique C. Torchia, PhD, Assistant Professor of Dermatology, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus
The incidence of melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer has been increasing dramatically over the last few decades. This is particularly evident in sun drenched states like Colorado. In this lecture you will learn about skin cancer, what causes it, current treatments, and how medical researchers study and model skin cancer, which originates from the normal stem cells found in skin.
