Neil Box, associate professor of dermatology in the School of Medicine at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus, recently received the Daneen and Charles Stiefel Investigative Scientist Award at the spring gala of the American Skin Association.
Box was recognized as an emerging leader in the study of melanoma risk. He has published 46 articles and has made important contributions to the understanding of melanoma risk mediated via genetic factors and environmental exposures. He’s dedicated to educating a new generation of melanoma investigators.
Recent changes at the NIH have limited support for mid-career investigators, instead favoring the work of senior and early career investigators. The grants funded by the Stiefel family will offer much-needed support to mid-career investigators poised to become leaders in key areas of melanoma research.
