Dr. Edelstein's research program focuses on the effects of cancer and cancer treatment on cognitive functions. Current studies include the following:
- Neurocognitive late effects of treatment in adult survivors of childhood cancer
- Effects of radiation treatment on brain structure and function in adults with low grade brain tumours
- Cancer and circadian rhythmicity: the relationship between cognitive function and disruptions in circadian timing in patients with hypothalamic tumours
