Research Interests

Dr. Taylor's primary research focus is cancer control in immigrant populations. She is currently the Principal Investigator for three research projects focusing on Asian immigrant/refugee communities: Cervical Cancer Control in Vietnamese Women, Hepatitis B ESL Education for Chinese, and Liver Cancer Control in North American Chinese. Dr. Taylor has recently completed two studies addressing cervical cancer control among Cambodian American and Chinese American/Canadian women. Additionally, Dr. Taylor is the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center Principal Investigator for the Asian American Network for Cancer Awareness, Research, and Training (AANCART). AANCART is a Community Network to Reduce Health Disparities and involves investigators from the University of Hawaii, University of California (Davis, Los Angeles, and San Francisco), and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center/University of Washington. Each regional site focuses on one Asian American sub-group; the Seattle site focuses on the Cambodian community.
