Psychology Research



Psychology faculty members are actively engaged in research across oncology, hematology and infectious disease populations. Individual research interests are varied, but generally fall within two major focus areas: Cognitive Neurosciences and Health Promotion.


Across both domains, the emphasis is on linking findings from outcomes research to inform the development of novel interventions for children and families. Please find individual links to each of our faculty’s webpages below. There you will find additional information regarding each faculty member’s research interests and recent publications.
