Dr Karolina Lisy is a Senior Research Fellow in the Survivorship and Living Well After Cancer group within the Department of Cancer Experiences Research at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. Dr Lisy earned her PhD for investigation into the role of a hypoxically-induced gene expression pathway in cancer progression, and completed four subsequent years of postdoctoral training in knowledge translation and evidence-based medicine, with a specific focus on chronic disease. Her current research interest is cancer survivorship, specifically in understanding survivors' experiences of care and long-term quality of life, developing and evaluating effective interventions and models of follow up care, understanding the experiences and needs of vulnerable or minority groups, and routine assessment of patient-reported outcomes.
