Dr. Julie Lange is an assistant professor of surgery, dermatology and oncology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Dr. Lange was one of the original members of the Johns Hopkins melanoma group when it was first formed in 1995 and now serves as a clinical co-director of the Melanoma Program. Dr. Lange introduced the sentinel node technique to Johns Hopkins for both melanoma and breast cancer in the 1990s and has extensive experience with this technique.
Dr. Lange is a graduate of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine and completed her general surgery training at Yale-New Haven Hospital. She completed a fellowship in surgical oncology and immunotherapy at the Surgery Branch of the National Cancer Institute as well. Dr. Lange joined the faculty of the Department of Surgery at Johns Hopkins in 1994 and subsequently earned a Sc.M. in clinical investigation at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
She has particular interest in melanoma at extremes of age, and in the factors associated with variance in melanoma care. Dr. Lange has published the largest study of melanoma in children, adolescents and young adults. She recognizes that melanoma in the older patient is a growing epidemic and has investigated the socioeconomic, demographic and healthcare factors that influence the treatment of melanoma in older persons.
Dr. Lange is a member of the melanoma panel of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, a group that annually evaluates and revises national treatment guidelines for melanoma. In 2015, she was inducted for her work into the Miller-Coulson Academy of Clinical Excellence, which recognizes outstanding clinicians at Johns Hopkins based on a number of factors, including communication and interpersonal skills, professionalism and humanism, a scholarly approach to clinical practice, and a passion for patient care.
