Area of interest

Dr. Lund is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at the Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC), as well as a faculty member of UNC’s Center for Pharmacoepidemiology and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center. Through her PhD and postdoctoral training, Jenny has developed a broad set of analytic tools, including focused training in state-of-the-art epidemiologic methods and their application to study the uses and impact of medical interventions in older patient populations. She has also amassed vast experience in working with large administrative databases in a variety of disease settings both in the United States and Denmark. Her primary research interests address health-related issues relevant to older cancer patients, including the role of comorbid disease in cancer prognosis, the effectiveness and safety of treatment options, the quality of care delivered, and the economic burden of cancer and its treatment on patients, their families, and the healthcare system. As a researcher trained in pharmacoepidemiology, she is uniquely positioned to conduct rigorous cancer comparative effectiveness and safety studies using large healthcare databases.
