His current NIH-funded research focuses on non-melanoma skin cancers, in particular the commonest human cancer - basal cell carcinomas. In addition his lab is investigating the cell of origin of these tumors, characterizing the cancer stem cells that perpetuate their growth, determining why some people are so much more susceptible to their growth than are others, even if of the same skin coloration, the role of the immune system in inhibiting their growth, and the development not only of new treatments but also of effective preventive approaches.

Speaker presentation guidelines

It is vitally important that all presenters be on time and leave time for audience questions.
Presenters should rehearse their presentations in advance to make sure they are under the allotment of time. It is mandatory that you keep to your scheduled time, and the session Chairs will ask you to stop once you have reached your official time allocation.
Please ensure you confirm your session room assignment, date and time in advance.
There are three Speaker Ready Rooms. Presentations must be left on the Speaker Ready Room corresponding to your room 90 minutes prior to the session starts.

An Audio-Visual Technician (AV Tech) will be in all session rooms from the beginning at the end of each session to ensure the equipment and presentations are correctly work.
Each room will be equipped with an LCD projector, computer, laser pointer and microphones.
Technicians will be available if assistance is required. Please do this with enough time.

Speaker Timing Device
All sessions will have a Speaker Timing Device to be set by the Chairs/Co-Chairs of the session.
We strongly recommend that your final slide contain your key points/messages/conclusions in case you run out of time and you need to advance your presentation to the final slide, in order to keep the presentation on time.
