Research Background

Over the past 14 years, Dr. Vadaparampil has developed a research program applying behavioral science, epidemiology, health services, and clinical perspectives to improve utilization of cancer prevention and control innovations across the cancer continuum. Her work has been influenced by transdisciplinary collaboration, focused on health disparities, and contributed to both the scientific literature and clinical practice. Over the past several years, she has applied these perspectives to several at risk groups including individuals at increased risk for inherited cancer susceptibility, loss of fertility due to cancer related treatment, and most recently, individuals at risk for cancers related to HPV infection. Her research has been funded by the National Institutes of Health, the American Cancer Society, and the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation.
