Dr. Gupta is a gastrointestinal oncologist, a symptom management enthusiast, and a health services researcher. His research specifically examines cancer care access and delivery, the costs of cancer care, and the hidden burdens imposed on and faced by people with cancer and their caregivers while receiving this care.

Research Summary

Dr. Gupta’s research is at the intersection of oncology, supportive care, and care delivery. His primary focus is identifying, understanding, and improving the ‘’hidden toxicities’’ of receiving cancer care. Many of the burdens of a cancer diagnosis and treatment on a patient and caregivers extend beyond the physical effects of the cancer itself. These include financial toxicity and caregiver burdens. The ultimate goal of this work is to improve the quality of life for people with cancer and their loved ones.
