About Janice Raup-Krieger

Research Interests: Behavioral determinants of cancer; cancer communication; cancer information; cancer prevention; cancer survivorship; health disparities

Dr. Krieger is communication scientist, with expertise in cancer communication, precision messaging, and health information technology. Her research focuses on the novel application of virtual health assistants to improve patient outcomes. This work has won several awards, including UF Invention of the Year (2021) and the Society for Public Health Education Technology Award (2020). Dr. Krieger directs the STEM Translational Communication Center (STCC), a center dedicated to the development and dissemination of translational communication interventions. She is also co-program leader for the Cancer Control and Population Sciences Program at the UF Cancer Center and co-director of the Recruitment Center at the UF Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute. Dr. Krieger currently leads two large NIH-funded trials examining the benefits of virtual human technology for improving cancer screening and clinical trial enrollment among underrepresented populations. Dr. Krieger also contributes her expertise in communication science to other major NIH and PCORI-funded initiatives, including the University of Florida Center for Advancing Minority Pain & Aging Science (CAMPAS). Dr. Krieger participates in many initiatives designed to enhance community engagement with research at UF and throughout the state and has a key role in shaping our university-wide communication strategy for cancer prevention and recruiting participants to clinical research.
