Janice Kiecolt-Glaser, PhD, is a member of the Cancer Control Program at the OSUCCC – James, where she focuses her research on behavioral influences on immune and endocrine function, as well as metabolism. One of her studies addresses the extent to which chemotherapy changes breast cancer survivors’ metabolic responses to fast food-type meals in ways that would promote weight gain and atherosclerosis. Another study addresses how breast cancer survivors’ physical fitness affects their inflammatory responses to immune challenges.

Dr. Kiecolt-Glaser has authored many articles that have appeared in such well-known publications as PNAS, Journal of Clinical Oncology, American Journal of Psychiatry, Psychoneuroendocrinology and Biological Psychiatry.
