Dr. Palesh is an expert in the field of cancer control, and she specializes in the intersection of sleep, circadian rhythms, and cancer.
Our research group studies cancer control. We are primarily interested in investigating the impact of cancer treatments on sleep, fatigue and quality of life. Current projects include investigating the impact of behavioral and pharmacological interventions on improving sleep, fatigue and quality of life in cancer patients and survivors. We are also investigating the relationship between dysregulation of the neuroendocrine stress response system, sleep problems, fatigue, and disease progression in cancer patients with primary and metastatic cancers.
It is our hope that through our research studies we can improve the lives of cancer patients both now and in the future.
We conduct research so future survivors will have more tools and resources to help them navigate the complex landscape of cancer survivorship
