Stephanie M. George, PhD is a postdoctoral Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) fellow in the Office of the Associate Director (OAD) of the Applied Research Program (ARP). While in ARP, under the mentorship of Dr. Rachel Ballard-Barbash, Dr. George will be conducting research to better understand the role of energy balance in the epidemiology of cancer survivorship, with attention to prognosis, cancer-related comorbidities, and measurable biological factors that predict survival. She will also be involved in methodologic research designed to improve physical activity and diet assessment.
Dr. George is trained in cancer epidemiology, public health, and communication, with degrees from Yale University (PhD in Cancer Epidemiology, MPH with concentration in Chronic Disease Epidemiology) and University of Maryland, College Park (MA and BA in Communication). Before joining ARP, she completed a year of postdoctoral research in the Nutritional Epidemiology Branch of the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genetics (DCEG) exploring the roles of physical activity and sedentary behavior in cancer etiology.
