Vogel Research Team

Mission: To research survivorship issues during and after treatment for cancer and test interventions to improve quality of life and outcomes.

Dr. Rachel I. Vogel is an Assistant Professor in Gynecology Oncology with a strong interest in cancer survivorship. As the number of cancer survivors increases, the long-term effects of the disease and treatment have become a substantial public health concern. Our research focuses on what issues patients face once they are diagnosed with cancer and beyond.
