Jennifer L. Guida, Ph.D., M.P.H.
Jennifer Guida, Ph.D., M.P.H., is a Program Director in the Basic Biobehavioral and Psychological Sciences Branch of the Behavioral Research Program (BBPSB). She leads a research program from a life course perspective to improve longevity and quality of life for cancer survivors as they age. Dr. Guida's research program utilizes biological and clinical measures of aging to better understand the aging consequences of cancer and cancer treatments. She is interested in pharmacologic and behavioral interventions to improve healthspan and minimize treatment-related effects for cancer survivors. Dr. Guida also has scientific interests in social relationships, health behaviors, and the social determinants of health as they relate to aging endpoints.
Dr. Guida holds a doctoral degree in epidemiology from the University of Maryland, a master's degree in public health from the University of Colorado, and a bachelor's degree in anthropology from Arizona State University. During her doctoral training, she worked as a fellow in the Division of Cancer Epidemiology and Genomics at the NCI to understand the etiologic heterogeneity of breast cancer. She completed her postdoctoral training with BBPSB as a Cancer Research Training Award Fellow.
