Primary Food Innovation Center Area: Foods for Health
Areas of Expertise: comparative carcinogenesis, molecular carcinogenesis, cancer prevention, oral cancer, cancer susceptibility

I bring to the Center an interest and expertise in the areas of molecular and comparative carcinogenesis; focusing on the biological mechanisms, genetic susceptibility and chemoprevention of head and neck and cervical cancer development. My research program has three primary areas of research: i) genetic susceptibility of cancer, ii) food-based cancer prevention and iii) the translational assessment of prevention approaches in human clinical trials. I look forward to continuing cross-college and -industry collaborative efforts focused on broadening innovative research on foods that positively impact public health.
