Meet the 2021 recipients:
Christopher George is a Columbia University graduate, New York Academy of Medicine Valentine Scholar presently working on a project to predict distant metastasis of early-stage melanoma at Erasmus Medical Center in the Netherlands. If successful, this project could pave the way for earlier induction of immunotherapy in patients, a change that can improve the prognosis for the approximately 1,700 Americans who lose their lives to early-stage melanoma annually.
