Neil Box, PhD, is well-versed in the harmful effects of UV rays. The native Australian is an assistant professor of dermatology at the CU School of Medicine and co-founder of the Colorado Melanoma Foundation (CMF). He has made it his mission to understand the genetic pathways that lead to skin cancer, to reduce melanoma cases and to raise awareness of sun-safety practices.
About the CMF, Box says, “We want to bring together researchers, clinical care givers and the melanoma patient survivor community to serve our community at-large on melanoma-related issues.”
