Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Yanez is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Social Sciences and a member of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. She received her undergraduate degree from New York University and her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles. Broadly, Dr. Yanez’s focus is in the area of cancer control and survivorship. Her work bridges behavioral medicine, health equity, and precision medicine to research improvements in the patient-centered and clinical outcomes of individuals diagnosed with cancer. Her research program is characterized by work focused on three major public health problems facing cancer patients and survivors: (a) adherence to cancer treatments; (b) outcomes among racial/ethnic minority cancer survivors; and (c) reach and scalability of evidence-based interventions for oncology patients that can be delivered via technology platforms. An emerging area of her work involves patient-centered precision oncology. Her ongoing work in this area aims to develop a patient-centered intervention that is feasible, scalable and embedded within a healthcare delivery system for patients receiving individualized cancer treatment based on genomic profiling.
