The majority of new cases of cancer occur in senior adults. However, elderly patients are considered at higher risk for toxicities of chemotherapy, and are often under-treated. My research goals are to identify the impact of geriatric syndromes and other factors on tolerance of chemotherapy, allowing clinicians and patients to make more informed decisions about therapy.
