Dr Emer Guinan is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow working with the Discipline of Physiotherapy and Department of Surgery. Her main research interest is in the role of physical activity in improving survivorship outcomes for patients with cancer. Her PhD work examined the relationships between physical activity and molecular biomarkers of breast cancer risk in high risk cohorts. Her current research focuses on the impact of complex cancer treatment regimens on functional performance and quality of life, specifically in cancer of the upper gastro-intestinal tract and in patients with advanced cancer.
