Our Mission

Under the direction of Dr. Heidi Donovan, RN, PhD and Dr. Paula Sherwood, RN, PhD, CNRN, the Innovations in Cancer Care Research program is dedicated to promoting the science of cancer care in areas such as symptom management, family caregiver distress, financial hardship, and cognitive dysfunction, among others. Although our main research office is located at the University of Pittsburgh, we also collaborate with Michigan State University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

For more information on any of our ongoing studies,  feel free to contact us.

We are currently working with persons diagnosed with cancer and their families to promote further understanding of the impact of cancer treatment. Please take a few minutes to view our work in progress!
