CV Dr. Katharina Roser



My research interests are the health and the behaviour of adolescents related to various kinds of exposures such as the environment or diseases. My current research focuses on childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer survivors. Aims are to investigate long-term outcomes such as psychological well-being, health-related quality of life as well as psychosocial health related to education, employment and partnership in these survivors. Furthermore, we aim to investigate predictors related to follow-up care after childhood, adolescent and young adult cancer. Another focus of research lies on the psychological well-being, psychosocial health and needs of parents of long-term childhood cancer survivors.
