    Research Overview

  • i) understanding the role played by obesity and body composition in toxicity from chemotherapy and survival in children with cancer,
    ii) understanding the burden of chronic health conditions in survivors of BMT performed during childhood and
    iii) investigating the role played by social determinants of health in explaining disparities in morbidity and mortality among BMT survivors.
