Department of Pharmacology & Physiology Faculty Interviews

Meet Edward Hartsough

"I wasn't necessarily married to melanoma at all as a model system, but I’ve found over the years that the melanoma research community is great. The people are really welcoming. Everybody's really supportive, especially to young investigators, so I don't see myself leaving this community any time soon." Read more.
