Dr. Vik's research interests include:

  • Pediatric cancer survivorship

My recent research involves improving the diagnosis and treatment of children with cancer in low-income countries. We have projects to treat children with cancer and to improve the diagnosis of leukemia through education and training of local health care workers in Kenya. We continue to seek funds to extend that work.
