The Biobehavioral Sciences program investigates mechanisms and methods for integrating behavioral and biological components of care for cancer survivors during and following active treatment. Research includes improving measures of symptoms and patient reported outcomes, defining longitudinal outcomes of cancer treatment, discovering biologic and behavioral markers for musculoskeletal and other long term complications in cancer survivors, evaluating pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic cancer pain treatments, and testing behavioral methods for improving treatment outcomes. Members of Biobehavioral Sciences also provide clinical services in psychology and psychiatry. Through research and patient services, our goal is to optimize the ability of patients to participate in their own care and to have high quality of life during and after cancer treatment.
