Current Research Interests

Dr. Moskowitz’s primary collaborations are with investigators in the cancer survivorship program and in the Department of Radiology. With colleagues in the cancer survivorship program, she is involved in studies researching issues pertinent to survivors of cancer, particularly survivors of pediatric cancers. She also works with radiology investigators on the design and analysis of a variety of studies assessing different imaging modalities and potential imaging biomarkers. Dr. Moskowitz’s primary research interests focus on developing and assessing the ability of biomarkers and risk prediction models to predict patient outcomes and studying issues involved with the use of imaging modalities to assess patient response to an anti-cancer therapeutic agent. She is the recipient of a grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop a model that predicts the risk of breast cancer in females who were treated with chest radiation for a pediatric malignancy.
