Kadan-Lottick has focused her work on improving outcomes in children, adolescents, and young adults with cancer, particularly after the end of their treatment. She joined Georgetown from Yale University School of Medicine, where she was a research scientist in pediatric hematology/oncology and founder and medical director of the HEROS Program, a multidisciplinary research and clinical program for long-term childhood cancer survivors that was one of the first of its kind in the country. She serves on the Children’s Oncology Group Executive Council and helped to co-author the Children’s Oncology Group Long-Term Follow-up Guidelines. She is currently the PI of two NCI-funded randomized control trials in childhood, adolescent, and young adult childhood cancer survivors to improve physical activity and adherence to recommended surveillance for late complications of therapy.
