Dr. Maria L. Wei is a dermatologist who specializes in both acquired and inherited melanoma and pigmentation disorders. She is the director of the UCSF Pigmented Lesions/Melanoma Surveillance Clinic, which treats patients with melanoma as well as those who are at high risk of developing the disease, such as those who have a family history of melanoma, those who have genetic test results indicating a risk, and those who have many moles or large congenital moles. Wei is the director of a melanoma research lab that looks at the biology of melanin-producing cells and how melanomas grow resistant to therapy. The lab is also studying new melanoma biomarkers and attempting to understand the gender disparity in melanoma outcomes (why men and women have different results) (measurable substances that indicate the disease).
