I have been engaged in the care of cancer patients for almost two decades. Although there have been tremendous advances over these years in cancer treatment we still have a long road ahead of us. Interestingly, the efforts devoted to cancer prevention, particularly diet and nutrition, and have lagged far behind. The Food Innovation Center combined with support from the James and Comprehensive Cancer Center can propel OSU to the forefront of research in the field of diet, nutrition, and cancer. This is the ideal model for trans-disciplinary research that can impact populations around the world. OSU is unique, as almost no other Universities have such strengths on one campus and simply must take advantage of this opportunity.
