THESE WOMEN WANT TO SAVE YOUR LIFE. BY SAVING YOUR SKIN.
Melanoma is one of the most common forms of cancer in the United States. Most cases are related to sun Uv-induced damage to the skin. And nearly 9,500 people in the U.S. are expected to die of melanoma in 2018.
But these five scientists are working to change all that.
MRA, the largest non-profit funder of melanoma research, has granted these women a Team Science Award for Women in Scientific Research to advance melanoma detection and treatment. The three-year research project is powered by the brilliance of five female scientists and funded by L’oréal Paris.
Since 2013, L’oréal Paris has committed a total of $1.5 million to MRA research.
