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.
