Kelly D Getz, PhD, MPH
Assistant Professor of Epidemiology

Dr. Getz’s research focuses on the treatment and supportive care of children and young adults with cancer, and on understanding and balancing the associated therapeutic benefits and toxicity risks, with a particular interest in cardiac toxicity. Her work is supported by an Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation Young Investigator award and a NHLBI K01 Career Development award. These studies leverage the strengths of multiple complementary data resources—including clinical trial data, administrative billing data, echocardiographic studies, and large-volume electronic health record data—to address important questions across the cardiotoxicity risk continuum. Dr. Getz also co-directs the advanced epidemiology course, Cancer Epidemiology.

She completed a postdoctoral research fellowship in the Division of Oncology and the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia under the mentorship of Dr. Richard Aplenc.
