Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship
The Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship was founded to help bridge the gaps in knowledge surrounding the relationships between physical activity, nutrition, obesity, and cancer.
The Center uses advancements in the energy balance research field to improve interventions which modify unhealthy behaviors in people at risk for cancer, patients and survivors, and to deliver innovative change at the clinical level.
By fostering a collaborative, trans-disciplinary environment, our research will advance the science related to:
- cancer prevention and survivorship–related interventions;
- the ways in which key energy balance concepts affect cancer biomarkers; and
- the biological and psychosocial mechanisms behind weight, eating behavior, and physical activity.
