Dr. Ann-Marie Codori


Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, Oncology


Ph.D., University of Maryland, College Park, MD

Clinical Interests

Genetic Testing for Colorectal Cancer

Research Summary

Dr. Codori’s research is focused on the psychological factors associated with cancer-prevention behavior. The long range goal of her research is to develop interventions to improve endoscopic screening rates and to reduce the morbidity and mortality of colorectal cancer. 

Dr. Codori’s research has contributed to our understanding that genetic testing for hereditary colorectal cancer in children is generally tolerated well. However, families where one child tests positive and another tests negative tend to have more psychological symptoms and need psychological follow-up.
