Working with members of the symptom
, and psychotherapy
laboratories, I have focused my research on cancer’s impact on quality of life
in prostate and geriatric cancer patients, and on developing new psychotherapy approaches for these groups. Some specific studies I have conducted include the impact of sexual dysfunction following cancer treatment; the cognitive effects of hormonal therapy
on prostate cancer
in African-American men with prostate cancer; and developing assessment
measures and psychotherapy specific to geriatric patients.
I am a member of many scientific and medical societies including Sexual Medicine Society of North American, Psycho-Oncology Association, and American Psychological Association, all organizations of specialists in my field. In addition, I am on the editorial board of and serve as statistical consultant for the Journal of Sexual Medicine and am a reviewer for various journals including the Journal of Urology and the Journal of Clinical Oncology. I am a member of Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Data Safety and Monitoring Committee.
