Transforming Skin Cancer Innovation
One of the most robust skin cancer research engines in the nation, the Department of Dermatology is poised to create a research institute unique in scope on a national scale. Its efforts are validated by generous grant funding from the National Institutes of Health as well as through its continuous stream of groundbreaking discoveries over the past decade. What exists now within this rich infrastructure is an opportunity to transform discovery in skin cancer research. CWRU plans four new centers exclusively dedicated to the study of skin cancer, which will complement existing centers of excellence in the Department. The emerging centers include:

The Skin Cancer Research Institute has an opportunity to be unique in the nation in its capacity to bring new therapies "from lab to life" by aligning specialized skills and catalyzing new knowledge through these centers.

Supporters of the Skin Cancer Research Institute play an integral role in making discovery possible. The impact of this support touches many individuals as researchers work to save lives through new knowledge and cures. Attracting funding to establish four new centers exclusively dedicated to skin cancer research is a major priority.

Endowments can be funded through outright gifts, bequests, and life income arrangements. You can make a difference today in the fight against skin cancer. For more information, or to learn about the many ways to give, contact:
