Meg Gerstenblith, BA, MD - Editor
I am a board-certified dermatologist with a focus on melanoma and other types of skin cancer. My training included basic science and patient-based research focused on cancer, specifically skin cancer, in addition to Dermatology residency. After completing a second research fellowship after residency, I joined the faculty at Case Western Reserve University, where I focused on melanoma both in terms of patient care and clinical research. In addition, I mentored many medical students, residents, and fellows both in clinical care and in research projects.
I am currently seeing patients part-time on the faculty of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and am finishing a collaborative research project, funded by the NIH, focused on melanoma as a part-time faculty member of the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. I continue to mentor medical students and residents both in clinic and on research projects and truly enjoy the teaching aspects of my profession. I also greatly enjoy writing scientific literature as well as translating what we are learning to my patients in clinic.
