Dr. Janelsins' research primarily focuses on understanding clinical, psychological, and biological contributors of cancer-related cognitive decline and on interventions to alleviate cancer-related cognitive decline involving randomized clinical trials, longitudinal studies, and animal modeling. Several of her research projects in this area has been funded by NIH/NCI including an NIH Director’s New Innovator Award for translating pre-clinical cognitive models of chemotherapy-related cognitive impairment in murine models to assessment of cognitive function using neuroscience-based methods in one of the largest nationwide cohort studies characterizing this important clinical problem.

Dr. Janelsins is Division Chief of Supportive Care in Cancer in the Department of Surgery. She is also Chair of Cancer Control Research for the URCC NCORP Research Base and Director of the URCC NCORP Biobank. She is also Co-Chair of the NCI Symptom Management and Quality of Life Steering Committee and a member of the NIH CSR Advisory Council. Dr. Janelsins also co-directs an NCI T32 Clinical and Translational Cancer Control Research Training Program at University of Rochester, which is in its 19th year. She is a passionate mentor to numerous scientists and clinician-scientist junior investigators from multiple disciplines.
