Music as medicine has become a more widely adopted concept. Now, UC experts at the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning are working with colleagues at the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute and the UC Cancer Center to blend music with recovery for patients who have undergone chemotherapy as part of treatment.  

This collaborative project — a music app — evolved from the ideas of experts at the UC College of Medicine who wanted to help patients and survivors experiencing "chemobrain".

Claudia Rebola, PhD, associate dean for research and associate professor in industrial design for DAAP, spoke to Fox19 about the creation of the app.
