    Collapse overview
    Marilyn L. Kwan, PhD, is a Research Scientist II (equivalent to Associate Professor academic rank) at the Division of Research, Kaiser Permanente Northern California. She graduated from University of California, Berkeley, with her PhD in Epidemiology in May 2004 and completed a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in September 2005, also at UC Berkeley. Dr. Kwan joined the Division of Research in July 2005, where her current research focus is breast and bladder cancer prognosis and survival. Specifically, her interests include lifestyle and molecular factors and their associations with cancer recurrence, survival, and quality of life. She also studies the long-term health effects of cancer treatment, specifically lymphedema and fractures, in breast cancer survivors. Dr. Kwan’s research has been funded by the National Cancer Institute, American Cancer Society, and California Breast Cancer Research Program.
