Major Research Activities
Dr. Aubin is currently the principal investigator on two research projects involving adolescents and young adults with cancer and men with genito-urinary cancers. The goal of the first is to identify the psychosocial and sexual adjustment of adolescents and young adults with cancer throughout the trajectory of the illness. More specifically, to test the effectiveness of a clinical intervention aimed at addressing the distinctive needs of adolescents and young adults who are diagnosed with cancer. The aim of the second study is to assess the impact of treatments on the sexual and relationship health of men diagnosed with genitourinary cancers.
