Apply to Join the Psycho-Oncology Research Program
The mission of the Psycho-Oncology Research Program is to improve quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and alleviating the emotional and physical burden of cancer. Please review recent publications to understand the content of our specific studies. Lab values include hard work, efficiency, courage, future-mindedness, and commitment. We are steadily expanding, so if you are interested in conducting psycho-oncology research, please apply to join our lab. Please note that students interested in pediatrics, neuroscience, or non-research careers should identify other departmental faculty.
Student Authored/Co-Authored PublicationsStudents in the lab have produced >25 publications as lead author or co-author under Dr. Hoerger's direct mentorship. Publications ensure that our research benefits society, support future research grant funding opportunities, and substantially enhance the training, career, and financial opportunities of those involved.
Recent Student-led Conference Posters and PresentationsStudents have presented >25 conference presentations and posters, usually 4-5 per year. We train students in the knowledge and skills needed to present, encourage conference submissions after a semester involved in the lab, and help secure funding to attend. Conference presentations and posters push forward project activities and document students' accomplishments on CVs and resumes. We have lab-specific evidence showing that conference output predicts acceptance into PhD, MD, and other graduate degree programs.
