Jennifer L. Lund, PhD
Her geriatric oncology research addresses: 1) the quality of cancer care, 2) the effectiveness and safety of cancer treatments and 3) the role of polypharmacy, multimorbidity, and frailty in cancer treatment selection and outcomes.
Dr. Lund has worked extensively with the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results program (SEER) Medicare data to examine patterns of chemotherapy uptake and investigate multilevel factors associated with the dissemination of innovative treatments among older cancer patients. She also has amassed international experience using large linked databases in Canada and Denmark.
