Transdisciplinary Energy Balance Research Seminar is open to all.
The Center for Energy Balanace in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship, of the Duncan Family Institute, facilitates and conducts state-of-the-science research to understand the relationship between activity, nutrition, obesity and cancer, and uses this knowledge to optimize interventions to decrease cancer risk and improve cancer outcomes. The Center sponsors collaborative research, transdisciplinary educational opportunities and seminars to create, produce and disseminate innovative and practice-changing research results.
The Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship's monthly trans-disciplinary research seminar aims to bring researchers from multiple disciplines together to examine different energy balance-related topics. We intend to highlight the translational and trans-disciplinary nature of energy balance research and promote communication between interested researchers.
