Psycho-Oncology Research

Dr. Suzanne Lechner’s research in psycho-oncology focuses on quality of life, positive adaptation to cancer and health disparities among cancer survivors. Dr. Lechner leads biobehavioral clinical trials and performs longitudinal research studies to examine how people adjust to illness and whether psychological, physical and physiological adjustment is modifiable using stress management and breast cancer education. Dr. Lechner’s survivorship laboratory is currently examining the effects of stress management interventions on immunological, endocrine, and psychological outcomes for black women with breast cancer who have recently completed treatment.
