About the Author

Jonathan Kantor, MD, MSCE, MA is an international authority on dermatology and skin surgery, who speaks frequently around the world on surgical techniques, skin cancer, atypical moles, wound healing, and other topics. He has authored more than 75 research articles, book chapters, and abstracts, and is active on the national level and in his local community. Dr. Kantor serves as Medical Director, Florida Center for Dermatology, PA as well as Adjunct Assistant Professor of Dermatology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, the nation's oldest and top-ranked academic dermatology department. Dr. Kantor's work has been published in every major dermatology journal, and his research has been quoted in the lay press on television, in newspapers, and in magazines such as Prevention, Reader's Digest, Self, and Fitness. One of the benchmark surgical techniques developed by Dr. Kantor, the set-back dermal suture, was the subject of a randomized controlled trial performed at the University of California, as well as a major journal editorial, where it was shown to be superior to the former gold standard technique-potentially changing the standard approach to surgical wound repair. Dr. Kantor serves as a member of the Editorial Board for the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology's Professionalism and Ethics Committee, where he chairs a workgroup. He has also been awarded the Member Making a Difference Award by the American Academy of Dermatology, the Academy's highest award offered for volunteerism. Dr. Kantor received his B.A. in Intellectual History from the University of Pennsylvania magna cum laude and was elected Phi Beta Kappa as an undergraduate. He then pursued broader interests and was awarded a Master's degree in history and entered the Ph.D. program in history at Penn, which he left to begin his formal medical training. During his medical studies, Dr. Kantor earned a National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded fellowship in clinical epidemiology and was awarded both an M.D. as well as a Masters of Science in Clinical Epidemiology.
