Title: Erin’s Story—Cancer Researcher
Description: “Health system-based research is critical. Figuring out how to do research within such systems in a way that positively affects our patients’ lives is really important.”
— Erin, Cancer Researcher

In 2020, Erin received her first NCI R01 grant, which is considered the “gold standard” for independent investigators working to answer specific research questions. Erin’s grant was funded through the Cancer Moonshot℠ on the topic of optimizing and managing cancer survivor care. Since then, she has applied for and received two more NCI awards.

Erin’s efforts to improve health care for cancer survivors and advance cancer prevention is central to NCI’s goal of improving the experience of people living with and after cancer and the institute’s mission to advance scientific knowledge to help all people live longer, healthier lives.
