Our research aims to provide rigorous scientific evidence about effective ways to reduce cancer risk and improve the well-being of workers, their families, low-income populations, and others. We focus on finding ways to promote healthy behaviors and healthy environments. We are interested in understanding the ways in that the social and physical environments in which people live and work influence health behaviors and disease risk. We are especially concerned about redressing disparities in cancer risk, whether by occupation, social class, race/ethnicity, or gender.

Research is led by Dr. Glorian Sorensen, Director of the DFCI Center for Community-based Research and Professor of Society, Human Development and Health at Harvard School of Public Health. Dr. Sorensen also directs the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Office for Faculty Development.

The Sorensen Lab is based at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in close affiliation with the Harvard School of Public Health.
