We caught up with the internationally renowned Dr. Michael Fenech of CSIRO Food and Nutrition Sciences in Adelaide, Australia, who presented at the 2010 AICR Research Conference during its opening plenary session.  His talk focused on the issue of DNA damage, which is a fundamental cause of many diseases and a key component in cancer development.  He reviewed data showing that many dietary nutrients interact with enzymes involved with DNA maintenance and repair, and laid out a roadmap that may ultimately lead to dietary guidelines for preventing DNA damage.

Dr. Fenech is highly regarded in the international research community for developing a means to measure DNA damage in human cells.
