Melanoma is a cancer we can stop with our eyes. Because we can see this disease, we can have a huge impact on it early – before it metastasizes.
The Leachman-Cassidy research groups seek to create a template for promoting good health by approaching melanoma from all angles: biology and chemistry, prevention and early detection, public and population health, education and outreach, as well as through the best diagnostics, pathology, surgery, and medical oncology.
By doing this, we will reduce the impact of melanoma to the minimum possible. This is our mission – for melanoma and beyond – because if we can do this with melanoma, we can do this with every disease.
