Stephen Lo, M.A.
Stephen Lo obtained his Bachelor of Science in Biology at Boston College in 2011. He then went on to work as a clinical research coordinator at Boston Medical Center's Cancer Center where he was involved with supportive care and treatment trials in a variety of cancer types and light chain (AL) amyloidosis. There, his work included evaluating the utility of distress screening in urban cancer patients and investigating the impact of treatment and disease on patient reported outcomes in AL amyloidosis. Stephen also received his Master's degree in Psychology from Boston University in 2015 where he worked with Dr. Michael Otto in the Translational Research Program—examining the influence of transdiagnostic risk factors such as anxiety sensitivity on health behaviors and assisting in studies of novel strategies for mood disorders. Stephen began his pre-doctoral studies in the Fall of 2016 and is interested in novel interventions in addressing various psychological and behavioral issues in cancer patients (e.g., depression, medication adherence,) and their mechanisms of change.
