Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2018
End Date: Aug 12, 2023

The objective of this research is to characterize the biological response of cancer biomarkers to dietary exposure of plant foods, including Brassica vegetables, berries, and garlic in humans.

Human intervention studies will be conducted with naturally occurring constituents of or the test food or component, including fruits, vegetables, and edible plant materials (e.g., spinach, Brassica vegetables, soybeans). Outcomes will include biomarkers of cancer risk.
