About

Dr. Wildes is an Associate Professor in the Division of Oncology and Hematology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center/Nebraska Medicine, specializing in Multiple Myeloma, Hematology/Oncology, and Geriatric Oncology.

Her overarching career goal is to improve the care of older adults with cancer by integrating the principles of geriatrics into both research and clinical practice in oncology. While there have been tremendous advances in our understanding of the biology of cancer and treatments, far less attention has been paid to the impact of treatments on outcomes prioritized by older adults.  Outcomes of importance in older populations, including memory/thinking, falls, independence in daily activities and quality-of- life, have been largely unstudied. 

Thus, Dr. Wildes undertook fellowship training in Geriatrics to enable her to better care for older adults with cancer clinically and to equip her to perform research in this area; she is currently one of approximately 100 physicians in the US clinically dual-trained in hematology/oncology & geriatrics.
