[Source: Arizona Daily Star] – A local skin cancer researcher has been named to a new endowed research chair at the Arizona Cancer Center.

A $1 million gift from Tucson residents Alan and Janice Levin will pay for the new position. The first appointee to the post is Dr. Clara Curiel, who is director of the Pigmented Lesion Clinic and the Multidisciplinary Cutaneous Oncology Program at the cancer center’s Skin Cancer Institute. The Levin family has lived in Tucson since 1969 and Alan Levin was once Curiel’s patient. The Levin family owns and operates Century Park Research Center, a warehousing, distribution and manufacturing center, and the Port of Tucson intermodal rail facility.
