The mission of the Behavioral Oncology lab is to develop, evaluate, and disseminate novel psychosocial approaches to improving symptom management and quality of life for people with cancer and their family caregivers. We also aim to identify demographic, medical, and social predictors of physical and psychological health outcomes in these populations to inform intervention development. We are especially interested in the management of fatigue, sleep disturbance, pain, anxiety, and depression in cancer care.
