To improve the mental and bodily health of cancer patients and cancer survivors.
The initial role of our lab is to primarily study in vivo models of cancer in order to ask basic science questions in line with this vision. Our work will be informed by health psychologists working with cancer patients, psychiatrists working on these mental health issues, oncologists, tumor biologists, immunologists, surgeons, neuroscientists, and wound healing experts. The future translation of this work to the bedside is a goal of our lab.
