The University of Miami CARES Lab is dedicated to serving the cancer community through research, community engagement, and psychosocial support. Our mission is to ensure that every person lives as well as possible beyond a diagnosis of cancer. Quality of life is critical at every age, stage, and phase of care. The CARES Lab is housed in Department of Public Health Sciences in the Miller School of Medicine and the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center.
The overarching aim of the CARES Lab is to understand the significant challenges faced by individuals coping with cancer and improve outcomes across the cancer continuum through patient-centered healthcare and tailored, empirically-supported interventions.
