2017 Research Recipient

In 2017, Melanoma Know More partnered with another local melanoma non-profit, Andy Caress Melanoma Foundation (ACMF), to help support Dr. Zalfa Abdel-Malek and her team at the University of Cincinnati Department of Dermatology. In partnership with ACMF, we collectively donated over $32,000 to the University so they could purchase a plate reader, which is something Dr. Abdel-Malek and her team use regularly and without it research cannot be achieved! The lab at UC had an old plate reader machine that was on it’s last leg, which made it critical that we help support the purchase of a new reader.
