Research in GI Oncology Survivorship

Our research program reflects the multi-disciplinary practices of the clinic, with doctors, nurses, epidemiologists, dietitians, psychologists, and physical therapists all working together to improve outcomes for patients. We practice clinical research with two strategies:

  1. Collecting clinical and patient-reported data to understand patient experiences and find lifestyle factors that are associated with better clinical outcomes and quality-of-life.
  2. Developing interventions to support healthy behaviors associated with lower cancer recurrence risk. Examples include the SmartPace Study and SUCCEED Study. Patient feedback about these research interventions is our most valued outcome and we seek to improve the content and delivery of health information to enhance survivorship.

Open Studies

LOGIC studyLifestyle and Outcomes after Gastro-Intestinal Cancer: A Prospective Cohort Study (LOGIC)

Principal Investigator: Erin Van Blarigan, ScD

The goal of the LOGIC study is to learn more about risk factors for cancer recurrence, quality-of-life, and psychological well-being in patients with gastrointestinal cancers. Participants are asked to complete surveys online every six months for five years and annually thereafter. For more information, please contact us at logicstudy@ucsf.edu.
