In an inspired moment of philanthropic partnership, Thomas and Mary Ellen Benninger, Elyse Eng, David and Martha Irmer, Ted and Wendy Hoffman, and William R. Payden, as well as his estate and his sister Joan Payden, all gave gifts to create the Chair in Melanoma Research and Treatment at CPMC.
Held by Mohammed Kashani-Sabet, M.D., the chair’s funding will help him and his team in their quest to create effective new treatments for melanoma.
These generous gifts are making a difference in the fight against deadly skin cancers.
CPMC’s Center for Melanoma and Research Treatment includes some of the most well-known melanoma specialists in the nation. Mohammed Kashani-Sabet, M.D., the center’s medical director, is a renowned dermatologist who has been treating melanoma and cutaneous lymphomas for more than 15 years. He is also a recipient of the Humanitarian Award from the Melanoma Research Foundation for exemplary patient care, leading-edge research and scientific leadership.
