Research and/or clinical interests  

Dr. Lynne Taylor’s research interests include clinical trials for patients with newly diagnosed glioblastoma (a type of brain cancer), recurrent glioblastoma and primary (CNS) lymphoma.  As a neuro-palliative care physician she is also very interested in quality of life studies in primary brain tumor patients and supporting cancer survivorship, particularly through connections with patient advocates and the power of social media to support patient reported outcomes.
