Professional overview

Dr. Merriman’s research is focused on changes in cognitive function after a diagnosis of cancer.  He is particularly interested in biobehavioral predictors of these cognitive changes, including functional and structural brain markers, genomic markers, and mood.  Prior to his faculty appointment, he was a postdoctoral associate at the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing and a doctoral student at the University of California, San Francisco School of Nursing.
