Our team is cross disciplinary in practice, with collaborators from diverse academic and professional fields, allowing us to effectively design and implement interventions, conduct longitudinal clinical trials and observational research, and evaluate the effectiveness of our programs. Our research uses both clinical trials and observational studies to examine the effects of a wide range of behaviors and interventions on cancer outcomes and survivorship. Interventions of interest target diet, physical activity, weight management, and use of integrative therapies.
