Assistant Professor Anao Zhang is a principal investigator on a new project funded by a $250,000 Eugene Washington Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) grant. The Rogel Cancer Center-based research team will work to bring equity to adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer research and outcomes. Professor Brad Zebrack and PhD student Nina Jackson Levin are part of the research team.
“Despite an overall improved five-year survival rate among AYA cancer survivors over the last 20 years, these improvements have not transferred equitably to underrepresented survivors, including people who are Black, Indigenous or other people of color, as well as sexual and gender minorities,” said Zhang.
