Mackenzi Pergolotti is an assistant professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy, in the College of Health and Human Sciences, at Colorado State University. As an occupational therapist, Dr. Pergolotti worked at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) developing programs aimed to better address the needs of multiple populations. Realizing the impact of cancer rehabilitation provided at centers like MSKCC, she was driven to build the evidence-base and programs for cancer rehabilitation nation-wide.

Previously, at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Dr. Pergolotti worked collaboratively with researchers from the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research, the Gillings School of Global Public Health, in the Department of Health Policy and Management, the Cancer Research Outcomes Group and the Geriatric Oncology Program at the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center through pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships to look at utilization, access to and the quality of cancer rehabilitation. Her pre doctoral fellowship was supported by a T32 National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Training Grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and her post doctoral fellowships were funded through an R25 Cancer Care Quality Training Program from the National Cancer Institute.
