December 8, 2016

Researcher processing dermatology specimenSkin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S., and the deadliest form of skin cancer is melanoma. The Melanoma Research Laboratory at Mayo Clinic is working to improve survival rates by developing novel treatments for metastatic melanoma. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio program, Dr. Svetomir Markovic, director of the lab, will discuss how immunotherapy and nanomedicines are showing promise in treating cancer. Also on the program, internal medicine specialist Dr. Anjali Bhagra will explain why point-of-care ultrasound is being used in the clinical setting to make more accurate bedside assessments of patients, and dermatologist Dr. Dawn Davis will have tips for winter skin care.

Listen to the program on Saturday, Dec. 10, at 9:05 a.m. CST, and follow #MayoClinicRadio.
