Dana Wolff-Hughes, PhD is a Cancer Research Training Award Fellow with the Science of Research and Technology Branch in the Behavioral Research Program. Prior to joining the NCI, she received her doctorate in Physical Activity Epidemiology from the University of Tennessee (2014) where her research explored the efficacy of accelerometer-derived total activity counts as a measure of physical activity.

Dr. Wolff-Hughes also has a Master of Science in Exercise Physiology from the University of Tennessee (2011) and a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Sport Science from Elon University (2009). Dr. Wolff-Hughes is interested in examining how the accuracy of physical activity and diet measures influences the dose response relationships with chronic disease states. As part of this work, she plans to further explore methods to better interpret and understand data from activity monitor.

Current and/or past BRP mentors include James McClain.
