Nancy Moran received her Bachelor’s degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology from The University of Illinois-Urbana/Champaign and went on to earn a doctoral degree in Nutritional Sciences from the same institution. As a postdoctoral researcher in the Comprehensive Cancer Center at OSU, her current projects focus on dietary carotenoid kinetics, interactions with genes, and cancer preventive bioactivities. My contribution to the Food Innovation Center is to provide tools and information to better understand how dietary phytochemicals may play a role in disease prevention. With this information, we will be able to better design intervention studies and make sound dietary recommendations for the public.
