Dr. Calvocoressi’s primary research interests are in cancer epidemiology and prevention. Past projects include participation in a multisite study that examined the impact of genetic and environmental factors on the development of meningiomas, and investigation of factors influencing mammography screening in diverse populations. Dr. Calvocoressi is currently collaborating with the Clinical Epidemiology Research Center at the Veterans Affairs Connecticut Healthcare System where her work focuses on prostate cancer. Studies, currently in the planning stage, include developing models to better predict cancer trajectories, and creating support tools to aid physician- and patient-level decisions regarding treatment options
