Research Abstract

My research focuses on the influences of mood on cancer outcomes, particularly survival and end-of-life care. The research spans from the molecular level (association of tumor genotypes with depression) to influences on oncologists' treatment decisions.
I also am the PI of grants that focus on educational interventions for oncology nurses and other oncology clinicians.
