Cancer-Focused Research:

Dr. Phillips is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Preventive Medicine. Her interdisciplinary research is focused on understanding the determinants and outcomes of physical activity participation in cancer survivors and the translation of this research into practice. Dr. Phillips has extensive experience conducting randomized controlled trials in cancer survivors and older adults to examine the effects of physical activity on cognitive and physical functioning and well-being. Her current research interests include understanding the biopsychosocial mechanisms underlying the relationship between physical activity and health and disease outcomes in cancer survivors; identifying the determinants of physical activity behavior change and maintenance; the intersection of cancer, aging, and multiple chronic conditions; the role of physical activity and sedentary behavior in the primary and secondary prevention of cancer, and the translation of research in these areas to practice using technology and innovative study designs and methods.
