Nutrition and Cancer


The Nutrition and Cancer Unit reserach group comprises a multidisciplinary team of epidemiologists, nutritionists, biologists, and statisticians. We focus primarily on aetiological research into the relationship between nutrition and cancer. This includes diet and dietary patterns, body composition and physical activity as possible determinants of cancer, as well as genetic susceptibility in human carcinogenesis. We also research the role of nutritional factors in the prognosis of cancer patients and survivors. To achieve this, we combine traditional epidemiological approaches with more innovative tools including exposure and susceptibility biomarkers.
