Professor Sandi Hayes is a Principal Research Fellow within the School of Public Health, Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation, Queensland University of Technology and co-leads QUT Improving Health Outcomes for People.
Professor Hayes’ research experience and interests relate to understanding recovery following cancer treatment. Her work has a particular focus on improving understanding of lymphoedema (swelling) caused by cancer treatment, as well as understanding the role of exercise in ‘bridging the gap’ between treatment cessation and the return to ‘normal’ daily lives for cancer survivors.
Professor Hayes currently holds a Cancer Council Queensland Senior Research Fellowship which provides research funding for five years (2014-2018) to improve understanding of cancer survivorship concerns.
