Pediatric skin cancer is rare but devastating, and standard cancer therapies are associated with both short- and long-term consequences. PeDRA’s STARC Focused Study Group works tirelessly to refine our understanding of primary skin tumors, to generate longitudinal data on the natural history and outcomes of potential precursors of skin malignancy, and to define and address unmet needs in cutaneous complications from therapies.
The STARC Focused Study Group is chaired by Carrie Coughlin, MD of Washington University. Contact us if you’re interested in getting involved!
