University of Colorado Dermatology Research Fellowship

University of Colorado Dermatology Research Fellowship through the National Cancer Institute (NCI) Diversity Supplement Description Drs. Robert Dellavalle and Barbara Walkosz have been awarded an R01 grant entitled Sun Safety Ink! R01CA206569 (Walkosz and Dellavalle). The NCI diversity supplement will allow the fellow to study sun protection and skin cancer reducing behaviors in the tattoo community. 


We created a national sun safety public education program for the tattoo community. The randomized clinical trial will assess the effectiveness of the educational intervention for promoting comprehensive skin cancer prevention. There are also many opportunities to work on side projects. We encourage the fellow to explore innovative methods to promote sun safety in the tattoo community.
