IPOS Member Profile: Maria-Chidi Christiana Onyedibe (Nigeria)

27 Nov 2023 10:55 AM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

I completed my PhD in clinical psychology with a particular emphasis on psycho-oncology at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka (UNN), achieving excellent results. I hold the position of senior lecturer, researcher, and Clinical psychologist at the Department of Psychology, UNN. Currently, I am undertaking a postdoctoral fellowship at the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), Heidelberg, Germany, where my research is focused on Physical Activity, Prevention, and Cancer, with specific emphasis on the psycho-social predictors and mediators of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in cancer patients and survivors. I have extensive experience in designing research studies and publishing their findings in international peer-reviewed journals, particularly on the psychological aspects of cancer. Collaborating with fellow researchers, especially in cancer research, holds great significance for me. Additionally, I am an active member of the psycho-oncology society and was pleased to attend the 2023 IPOS conference in Milan, which centered around my area of expertise. The pursuit of enhancing the quality of life among cancer patients and survivors, particularly in Low- and Middle-Income Countries (LMICs) like Nigeria, is a cause that deeply resonates with me. Furthermore, I am a licensed clinical psychologist under the auspices of the Nigerian Association of Clinical Psychologists (NACP) and hold affiliations with other national and international associations of psychologists.
