Funding New Treatments for Melanoma
In an inspired moment of philanthropic partnership, Thomas and Mary Ellen Benninger, Elyse Eng, David and Martha Irmer, Ted and Wendy Hoffman, and William R. Payden, as well as his estate and his sister Joan Payden, all gave gifts to create the Chair in Melanoma Research and Treatment at CPMC.
Held by Mohammed Kashani-Sabet, M.D., the chair’s funding will help him and his team in their quest to create effective new treatments for melanoma.
