Nutritional Science Research Group

This group plans, develops, directs, and coordinates external research programs in diet and nutrition, including micronutrients as modifiers of cancer risk and tumor behavior, to help establish a comprehensive understanding of the precise role of bioactive food components. Projects focus on determining how specific genes and/or molecular targets are influenced by either essential or non-essential nutrients. Research is aimed at identifying people who will benefit and people who might be placed at risk from dietary intervention strategies.
