|The UC Department of Dermatology will host Mario Lacouture, MD, as the Procter and Gamble Visiting Lecturer, on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2012. Lacouture will present a lecture titled, "The Superficial Side of Cancer Therapies: Dermatologic Adverse Events.”
Lacouture is associate professor of dermatology at Cornell University and an associate member of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
His special interest in the dermatologic side effects that result from cancer treatments has shaped his clinical focus towards recognizing and managing the side effects affecting the skin, hair, and nails of cancer patients and survivors as a consequence of chemotherapy, radiation, or transplantation.
His research focuses on exploring new skin treatments that do not interfere with the effectiveness of anticancer drugs.
