View Dr. Noll's full list of publications from PubMed.
Dr. Noll, pediatric psychologist at Children’s, has a rich background in research, clinical care, and teaching to the hospital, its patients, and the University of Pittsburgh. After graduating from Ohio University with a BBA, Dr. Noll spent five years as a fighter pilot in the USN where he flew over 170 combat missions in Vietnam and received two Distinguished Flying Crosses, four Individual Air Medals, and four Navy Commendation Medals. After discharge from the Navy, Dr. Noll spent a year at the University of California at Berkeley where he received a psychology major. He then completed his graduate studies at Michigan State University, where he earned a PhD in clinical child psychology with a developmental psychology minor.
Dr. Noll’s research has focused on gaining a better understanding of the impact of medical challenges for children, their parents, and siblings. While Dr. Noll’s work has included studies examining the functioning of children with sickle cell, arthritis, hemophilia, migraines, fibromyalgia, and neurofibromatosis, children with cancer and their families have been the center point of his research and teaching career. Dr. Noll has published 125 peer-reviewed papers in scientific journals, including 40+ focusing on pediatric cancers. Along with this academic focus, Dr. Noll has been extremely involved in the mentoring of junior faculty, fellows, and graduate students. Dr. Noll has been the primary or co-primary mentor for six career development awards, and four of his previous fellows currently have NIH funding.
Currently, Dr. Noll is the Chair of the Behavioral Science Committee within the Children’s Oncology Group and responsible for the mentoring/development of a number of scholars in the United States. He is also involved with four ongoing NIH funded studies related to children with cancer. Additionally, Dr. Noll was awarded a one-year Supportive Care Research grant of $98,917 last month from the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising money for childhood cancer research. Dr. Noll’s is one of nine supportive research grants awarded this year by the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. He will conduct a research-backed, school-based project to support brain tumor survivors' social involvement by training classmates to be more inclusive of others viewed as "different."
