With Fresh Perspectives, Research Team Studies Needs of Older Patients

Wilmot researchers are taking on a wide variety of investigations all under the umbrella of “cancer and aging,” including studies of biomarkers for aging, the way aging cells respond to the stressful assault of cancer treatment, and how to use decision-making tools to help older patients prioritize their concerns and make trade-offs when it comes to treatment.
