Dr. Wong’s primary research interest is in supportive care in oncology where she conducts studies to optimize the management of adverse events experienced by the cancer patients with the intent to improve patient’s quality-of-life. Her current research theme is in the management of papulopustular skin rash in cancer patients receiving epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitors. Currently she is conducting a study to validate a patient self-reporting Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy (FACT-EGFR) at 48 sites nationally through SWOG cooperative group. The next phase of the study will be a randomize double-blind clinical study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of a topical cream in the treatment of the skin rash which also includes the translational research component to explore predictive biomarkers and innovative method to obtain biospecimens.
