Multidisciplinary Team of UNC Researchers Awarded Developmental Grant for Innovative Prostate Cancer Program

Dr. Lixin Song, UNC School of Nursing Faculty, recently received a UNC Lineberger Cancer Center Developmental Award to support her project entitled, “Development of A Couple-focused eHealth Intervention for Prostate Cancer-Related Symptom Management.”  In this innovative study, Dr. Song and collaborators, including Dr. Matthew Nielsen, UNC Department of Urology faculty member, will develop and test a new couple-focused eHealth intervention targeted at prostate cancer survivors and their caregivers seen in the Multidisciplinary Urologic Oncology program.   This one-year Developmental Award will support the acquisition of preliminary data to inform a longer-term application for external funding to support this important work.  Congratulations Drs. Song and Nielsen!  http://unclineberger.org/research/developmental-research-awards/2013-awards
