Vision & Mission

Our lab is focused on understanding and improving psychosocial outcomes in children diagnosed with cancer.

 

There are three main themes to the research projects we are currently pursuing:

 

  1. The use of psychosocial screening measures to better tailor interventions to individual family needs

  2. Understanding social competence strengths and challenges in pediatric brain tumor survivors in order to develop targeted interventions

  3. Supporting the transition of cancer survivors from pediatric to adult healthcare. Our goal is to develop research projects, knowledge-sharing activities, and collaborative relationships that will have a positive impact on pediatric cancer survivor well-being.
