When compared to Africans, Europeans are 10-20 times more susceptible to the deadliest form of skin cancer—melanoma. Despite their similarly light skin color, East Asians have melanoma incidences similar to Africans. Dr Kai Chung Ang, a Malaysian postdoctoral researcher working at Cheng’s lab and his colleagues will be working on a project to understand this difference. To proceed with this research project, Dr Ang and his colleagues require funds to cover travel costs for their fieldwork. Help them raise the funds they need with 3 more days to go!
