MetteHoybyeMette Terp Hoybye, MSc, PhD

Dr. Hoybye's research is concerned with the rehabilitation of cancer survivors and has a particular focus on how the internet and new social media may be utilized to support cancer rehabilitation.
While visiting Stanford University, Dr. Hoybye is working on developing a behavioral intervention seeking to increase adherence to cancer treatment and alleviate social isolation through an immersive 3D online real-time multi-user environment for adolescents and young adults with cancer. This work brings together previous work on social media as a resource to people with a serious illness and insights from research on video-games and immersive virtual worlds, to establish new ways for engaging youth in medical treatment and increase their knowledge on the illness they are facing.
