Welcome to the Cancer Control and Psychoneuroimmunology Lab
The Cancer Control and Psychoneuroimmunology Laboratory (CCPL), led by Dr. Michelle Janelsins, is a clinical and translational research lab that is focused on three main project areas from T1-T4 levels of research:
- Understanding clinical, psychological, and biological mechanisms of cognitive difficulties in cancer patients
- Investigating interventions to alleviate cognitive difficulties in cancer patients
- Translational models of cognitive difficulties in cancer
We use a number of multidisciplinary approaches in psychoneuroimmunology, immunology, neuroscience and cognitive science spanning from basic research in animal model and cell culture systems to large cohort studies and randomized clinical trials.
