John A. Carucci, MD, PhD
Dr Carucci is a professor in the Ronald O. Perelman Department of Dermatology at New York University Grossman School of Medicine and Director of Dermatologic Surgery at NYU Langone Health, New York, NY. He received both his medical degree and his PhD from SUNY Downstate College of Medicine, Brooklyn, NY. There, he completed his residency, after which he pursued a fellowship in dermatologic surgery at Yale–New Haven Medical Center. He currently serves as President of the International Immunosuppression & Transplant Skin Cancer Collaborative. Dr Carucci specializes in reconstructive surgery using Mohs and laser techniques, particularly for those diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma. His most recent research has focused on the interaction of the immune system with skin cancers, specifically the role of interleukin-22–producing cells in promoting the development of squamous cell carcinoma. Further research holds the possibility of identifying practical regulatory targets within the IL-22 pathway that could ultimately lead to strategies for blocking tumor development. In addition, Dr Carucci and his collaborators have developed a method of correlating gene expression with the clinical course of squamous cell carcinoma.
Anna Pavlick, BSN, MSc, DO, MBA
Anna Pavlick, BSN, MSc, DO, MBA, is a medical oncologist with more than 20 years of experience treating patients with skin cancer, including basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, and Merkel cell carcinoma.

Dr Pavlick earned her medical degree from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ)–Robert Wood Johnson Medical School; her Master of Science in human anatomy from Fairleigh Dickinson University; and her Bachelor of Science in biology and nursing from Fairfield University. She completed an internal medicine residency at UMDNJ and hematology and oncology fellowship training at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, after which she joined the faculty of Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY, as Professor of Medicine in the Division of Hematology & Medical Oncology. She is the founding Director of the Cutaneous Oncology Program there and at New York-Presbyterian Hospital.
