Jean Tang, MD, PhD is co-founder of PellePharm and serves on the PellePharm board of directors. She is a practicing dermatologist and associate professor of dermatology at Stanford University. In this video, Dr. Tang discusses Gorlin Syndrome, a rare, genetic, disease characterized by mutations in the tumor suppressor gene encoding Patched1 (PTCH1), which acts as the primary inhibitor of the hedgehog signaling pathway. This leads to hundreds of basal cell carcinomas, especially on the face and sun-exposed areas.
