Dr Christin Burd - Ohio State University, Columbus, USA

Dr Christin Burd speaks with ecancertv at AACR 2016 about her research into the potential for SPF30 sunscreen to delay the onset of melanoma.

Though the damaging potential of UVA and UVB radiation has long been known, attitudes in the cosmetic industry (which regulates sun-screen lotion development) are at odds with the animal testing required to prove a direct delay of melanoma onset in UV sensitive knockout mice.

The news article supporting this video can be found here, and it also features in our highlights of the AACR conference.
