Mechanism establishing dietary induced relative risk for intestinal tumors (2015)

Title:

Mechanism establishing dietary induced relative risk for intestinal tumors

Key words:

Research Institution:

Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University

Location:

Researcher:

Leonard H. Augenlicht

Project Description:

Dr. Augenlicht�s lab will study how vitamin D levels influence stem cells to give rise to tumors. These experiments may establish a new understanding how risk of cancer is caused by long-term dietary exposures. This may lead to new ways of detecting individuals at higher risk, which is a key to cost effective methods to detect tumors early and remove them before they can spread, and to nutritional interventions that may lower the risk of these tumors from ever developing in the first place.
