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. Advancements in the energy balance research field will be used to optimize interventions to modify unhealthy behaviors, decrease cancer risk and improve cancer outcomes and deliver innovative practice-level changes to the clinical realm. By fostering a collaborative, trans-disciplinary environment, our research will contribute to institutional prestige by providing state-of-the-science erudition in:
- prevention and survivorship–related interventions;
- how key energy balance concepts affect cancer biomarkers; and
- the biological and psychosocial mechanisms behind weight, eating behavior, and physical activity.
