Updated Sunday, January 24, 2016A new iPhone app, Mole Mapper, lets users measure, map, monitor and photograph skin moles. This information shows users changes in moles that could be signs of skin cancer. In addition, users can share their data with the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute Melanoma Registry to help melanoma research. Dan Webster, PhD, a cancer biologist, created the first version of the app to watch his wife’s moles because of her high risk of developing melanoma. Then, Webster collaborated with Oregon Health and Science University, Sage Bionetworks and Apple to use the app for melanoma research.
