Norskov, Rick

Description

The purpose of my research topic is to study the difference between normal skin tissue and melanoma skin tissue. I will discuss how melanoma is developed, more specifically from the cells that causes the cancer, melanocytes which makes melanin that is usually brown which is why it is seen as brown or even black in the skin. Where the cancer can develop, then describe the process of how it grows and what it does to the tissue of the skin. The difference between normal skin and melanoma skin from the tissue to the epidermis will be shown from a histological perspective.
