International Transplant Skin Cancer Collaborative (ITSCC)

Solid organ transplant recipients are up to 65 times more likely to develop skin cancer than people without transplants. The International Transplant Skin Cancer Collaborative (ITSCC) was founded in 2001 by dermatologists from several institutions in response to this alarming phenomenon of accelerated skin cancer development in solid organ transplant recipients. Our mission is to:

  1. Integrate and support basic scientific and clinical research to address the special needs of transplant recipients with skin cancer to improve quality of care.
  2. To educate patients, scientists, primary care doctors and specialist physicians on the unique needs and clinical care issues in the transplant patients.
