My laboratory is primarily interested in understanding how cancer and cancer survival affects brain and behavior. Specifically, we seek to identify the immune and endocrine pathways underlying cognitive impairment, affect, and fatigue due to mammary tumors and chemotherapy. Most of our work uses mouse models, but some is in cancer patients. We use an integrative biology approach to studying these questions and broad levels of analyses (behavioral, physiological, cellular, molecular).
