Jennifer Guida, Ph.D., M.P.H., is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Basic Biobehavioral and Psychological Sciences Branch of the Behavioral Research Program. Dr. Guida's research interests focus on the intersection between aging, cancer, cancer treatment. In particular, she is interested in the role of psychosocial factors that impact quality of life and lead to aging endpoints for cancer survivors. Her empirical work includes utilizing longitudinal social network methods to understand how the social networks of cancer survivors evolve over time and their impacts on health. Dr. Guida is also interested in lifestyle interventions to improve cancer and aging-related outcomes.
