Bio/Research

Dr. Kristin Campbell is a physical therapist and research scientist. Dr. Campbell’s research laboratory, the Clinical Exercise Physiology Lab, focused on the role of exercise across the cancer experience, namely in prevention, rehabilitation from cancer treatments and cancer survivorship. She has investigated the role of physical activity in cancer prevention by examining the effect of exercise on proposed biomarkers of breast and colon cancer risk, such as sex hormones, inflammatory markers and tissue protein expression. In terms of rehabilitation from cancer treatment and cancer survivors, her research has focused on examining the benefits of physical activity on physical function, quality of life, fatigue and lymphedema, as well as biomarkers of cancer recurrence and overall health. Dr. Campbell works collaboratively with faculty in Human Kinetics, School of Population and Public Health, and Family Practice.

Dr. Campbell is an investigator in the BC Cancer Agency Cancer Survivorship Research Centre, Interdisciplinary Oncology Program (College of Interdisciplinary Studies at UBC), Providence Health Care and Vancouver Coastal Health. Her areas of methodological expertise include randomized controlled trials, exercise testing, exercise prescription for individuals with cancer and other chronic diseases, and biomarkers.
