Research Interests

Quality of Life Research and Health Services Research in Breast Cancer and Melanoma


Dr. Jacobs specializes in melanoma and breast cancer. Her initial practice was at the University of Missouri at the Ellis Fischel State Cancer Center, which is the designated cancer center for the state. Since joining Johns Hopkins in 2004, she has taken a leadership role regarding clinical research trials for the surgical division of the Johns Hopkins Breast Center.

Dr. Jacobs has a clinical interest in treatment of early stage melanoma. She has worked closely with dermatologists and medical oncologist at both Johns Hopkins University and the University of Missouri to improve awareness and care of melanoma patients by participating in educational programs and clinical research trials.

Breast Cancer
Breast cancer care has been a focus of Dr. Jacobs clinical practice since finishing her surgical oncology fellowship. Her primary clinical interest is in improving overall quality of life for breast cancer patients. To achieve that goal, she has initiated research programs in lymphedema and oncoplastic surgery, which attempts to increase the number of women eligible for breast preservation by combining lumpectomy with plastic surgery techniques to reshape the breast.
