Michelle Sodipo is a first year Population Health Sciences Ph.D student in the Department of Epidemiology with a focus in cancer epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. She received her B.S in Biology and Community Health from Tufts University, and her MPH in Chronic Diseases from Yale School of Public Health.
Previously, Michelle’s work has centered on conducting research to explore ways to improve health-related quality of life for reproductive cancer survivors. However, with continual disparities in cancer treatment and outcomes, Michelle, while at Harvard, hopes to build upon her previous work to research prostate cancer racial disparities. She is interested in methods to improve quality of life of advanced stage prostate cancer survivors and finding potential policies that can improve clinical trial representation of various identities.
