Our laboratory studies toxicological effects in everyday life that act as triggers in the formation of cancer.  We have discovered that intra-abdominal (visceral) fat can promote carcinogenesis in in vitro models and animal models of high-fat diet-induced obesity.  We aim to identify specific mechanisms of obesity-promoted cancer with a focus on visceral fat inflammation.  Additionally, we have interests in screening to identify new compounds that target our pathways for chemo prevention and identifying modifiable risk factors as a bio-markers of adiposity-associated cancer that are amenable to prevention and early intervention measures.
