USF: Psycho-oncology alternative method to treat breast cancer

The recipient of a $2.8 million grant for a five-year research program, USF’s College of Nursing is the only research program receiving funding from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for a non-pharmacological approach to treat breast cancer patients, according to Cecile Lengacher, professor and director of the pre-doctoral fellowship program at the College of Nursing.

Going into the second year of the grant, the College is in collaboration with the Moffitt Cancer Center and the Morsani College of Medicine to provide a complementary alternative therapy treatment meant to ease patients’ cognitive functioning.
