Dr. Cohen’s research focuses on improving quality of life for cancer survivors. Specifically, he works with breast and prostate cancer survivors. Dr. Cohen’s previous research explored behavioral interventions incorporating physical activity with complementary methods such as relaxation techniques and heat therapy. He is focused on integrating clinical components into behavioral interventions with the goal of enriching targeted outcomes. His current projects focus on designing clinic-based studies to help researchers understand the specific preferences of cancer survivors for improving adherence to personalized behavioral interventions both during and following treatment cycles. Dr. Cohen is also interested in designing disseminable aerobic exercise programs for underserved cancer survivors.
