Your donations are making a difference in skin cancer research
Because of your support, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine researchers are breaking ground in skin cancer research.
Dr. Richard Neubig and his research team have discovered a promising new drug that stops the spread of melanoma by 90 percent.
Melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer, can spread quickly and aggressively throughout the body, attacking distant organs such as the brain and lungs. Dr. Neubig’s research could be highly effective in battling the disease’s ability to spread. If the disease is caught early, chance of death is only 2 percent. If caught late, that figure rises to 84 percent.
Dr. Neubig’s research is supported in part by MSU Gran Fondo donations and grants from the National Institutes of Health. Additional researchers from MSU and the University of Michigan contributed to the project. Learn more about the research.
