Research Focus

Our research focuses on a wide range of cancer projects involving partnership with epidemiologists, biostatisticians, health services researchers, and clinicians across UC San Diego and other institutions around the country. Ongoing projects study large cohorts of patients where we focus on patient-specific health outcomes, comparative effectiveness research, cost-effectiveness research, and the study of innovative approaches to harness the expanding capacity of big data. We provide training, education, and mentorship for students, residents, and post-doctoral scholars interested in health outcomes and health services research. Ultimately we aim to produce results that improve the health and well-being of all cancer patients.
