Reducing Cancer Symptoms & Improving Caregiver Well-Being

Our group focuses our research in the areas of cancer control and behavioral science. Key to our efforts is to understand and reduce morbidity from cancer and treating related physical and psychosocial symptoms with an intent to improve patient reported outcomes (PROs).

We design IT enabled interventions to improve quality of life through development and testing remote monitoring and care management systems designed to reduce cancer patient symptoms and improve family caregiver well-being.
