Summary

I focus on the delivery of supportive care services to optimize the functionality and quality-of-life for patients with cancer in all disease stages.

My research goals are:

  • Identifying novel strategies to protect critical elements of the lymphatic system during primary cancer treatments; and facilitating lymphatic healing in order to reduce risk of developing secondary lymphedema.
  • Developing novel models for the delivery of supportive cancer care that overcome traditional logistic, geographic and cost barriers.
  • Clarifying the physiologic mechanisms by which symptom burden, physical functioning and stress reciprocally interact in order to develop improved treatment approaches.
