Swetha’s dissertation work examines real-world racial disparities, treatment initiation, and survival outcomes associated with the receipt of biomarker testing for patients with advanced non-small cell lung cancer. More broadly, she is interested in access, quality, and value of pharmaceutical innovation, with a particular interest in emerging technologies in oncology.
