Laboratory Operations

We conduct multidisciplinary, biopsychosocial research in three broad areas:

  • The effects of exercise on cancer control outcomes such as prevention, coping, rehabilitation, health promotion, palliation, and survival,
  • the determinants of exercise for cancer control, and
  • the effectiveness of interventions designed to promote exercise for cancer control.

The Behavioural Medicine laboratory is involved in many large scale case-control and cohort studies as well as single-site and multi-centre randomized controlled trials, with a variety of cancer sites being represented, including colorectal, prostate, testicular, hematologic, gynecologic, and breast cancer.
