Research Project: Nutrition Research to Reduce the Risk of Cancer

Location: Food Components and Health Laboratory

Project Number: 8040-51000-056-08-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 22, 2014
End Date: Sep 21, 2019

Objective:
To support research on the role of dietary components and how they impact risk for cancer.

Approach:
ARS will design nutrition studies, prepare protocols for human studies, and conduct dietary and lifestyle interventions. Results from these interventions will be used by both parties to jointly develop new information on the role of diet and risk for cancer. The Cooperator will provide dietetic, food service, and scientific support for these studies.
