Her current research is on the one hand on health and nursing care for the elderly and on the other hand focusing breast cancer recovery applying a bio-psycho-social perspective. A longitudinal, five-year, study including those diagnosed with breast cancer and including bio-molecular, clinical, psychological and social variables is ongoing collecting five-year data. In collaboration with experimental researchers the study is in particular aiming at exploring the bio-molecular fingerprints of psychological resilience. This is to get a deeper understanding of factors contributing to regaining health related quality of life.
