Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer, affecting more than 5 million people each year in the United States alone. Understanding how to best prevent and treat skin cancer is tremendously important for both the public health community as well as for individual patients.
Eleni Linos MD DrPH, is dually trained in public health and dermatology. She is a leader in the field of skin cancer research and prevention. Dr. Linos leads a multidisciplinary international research team of postdoctoral fellows, medical students, and research scientists. The team’s primary goals are to better understand the causes of skin cancer and apply this to cancer prevention. Dr. Linos’ team also works to help patients make informed treatment decisions, tailored to their individual preferences and personal characteristics.
Dr. Linos completed her medical education at Cambridge and Oxford Universities in the United Kingdom. She then went on to complete her doctorate at the Harvard School of Public Health in Cancer Epidemiology and then trained to become a board certified dermatologist at Stanford University.
As Director of Diversity for the Department of Dermatology, Dr. Linos is committed to building a broadly diverse dermatology community that nurtures a culture of inclusion in education, research and patient care.
