Bibiana is a first-year MSc student in the Department of Reproductive and Developmental Sciences at UBC. She is currently completing her master’s research in Dr. Lori Brotto’s Sexual Health Laboratory. She completed her BSc in Biological Sciences with a minor Psychology: Brain and Cognition at the University of Guelph in 2019. Bibiana’s interest in sexual health began at Guelph, where she presented research examining the impact of health on the sexual functioning of midlife Canadians. Currently, she is involved in the INTROSPPECT study, which examines the use of mindfulness and CBT interventions for prostate cancer survivors and their partners who are experiencing sexual dysfunction. The goal of the study is to translate the research into a useful format for prostate cancer survivors, their partners, and the medical professionals who treat them.
