Dr. Kelly McConnell’s research examines the nature and predictors of distress in older adult patients with cancer and their caregivers and care received at the end-of-life. She also examines the efficacy and implementation of interventions to reduce distress and increase rates of advance care planning in patients and caregivers. She has received NIH (K23, R21) and foundation (American Cancer Society, American Federation for Aging Research, RRF Foundation for Aging) grant funding for this research.

Joseph Olechnowicz, MA, Senior Editor, Department of Pediatrics, MSK
Joe Olechnowicz assists investigators with successfully communicating their scientific goals and asking for federal and philanthropic support for achieving them. He joined the Department of Pediatrics in 2008 initially contributing to protocol/project development activities (including protocol review activities of the department as well as the development of the FDA approved drug naxitamab) while also assisting with manuscript submissions and grant application and reporting.

Joe received his B.S. in biology from John Carroll University and his M.A. from Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in biomedical ethics while also working in the lab of Dr. Sanford Markowitz on the genetics of familial colon cancer syndromes. He went on to work with Dr. Eric Kodish at the Cleveland Clinic analyzing the use of proxy consent and assent in clinical research involving children (Olechnowicz et al. Pediatrics, 2002). He then attempted to study the philosophy underpinning consent and intentional/free action (along with some other stuff) at Florida State University. He currently is employed using the skills he acquired during his academic activities, namely, writing concisely and precisely and making difficult scientific/conceptual explanations understandable.
