Mission and Vision


The Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship facilitates and conducts state-of-the-science research to understand the relationships between physical activity, nutrition, obesity, and cancer, and uses this knowledge to optimize interventions to decrease cancer risk and improve cancer outcomes.  


We envision that MD Anderson will be a premier center for energy balance research, producing and disseminating innovative and practice-changing research results.
