Energy Balance Assessment Supplemental Funding
Request for Application
The Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship (CEB) encourages collaborative, trans-disciplinary research on energy balance and cancer. Energy balance research investigates the effects of diet, physical activity, and body composition on the development and progression of cancer and on cancer patients’ quality of life. MD Anderson has numerous shared resources that provide services to support EB research, including assessments of physical fitness and body composition, physical activity, and dietary intake; microbiome sequencing; metabolite analysis; and measures of mouse energy intake and output.
The CEB offers funding (up to $10,000/project) to support shared resource services included in Energy Balance pilot tests which generate preliminary data for a larger grant application. Preference will be given to projects with an approved IRB protocol already in place.
