Energy Balance and Cancer Research Retreat
- Trials in cancer survivors and people at risk for cancer (particularly high risk populations) of the effect of physical activity, diet, or weight control interventions on (1) biomarkers of cancer initiation and promotion, prognosis, or survival; (2) prevention or remediation of lasting/late effects of cancer and its treatment; (3) behavior change, fitness, or weight management.
- Studies of the biological mechanisms underlying the relationships between physical activity, diet, weight status and cancer initiation, promotion, progression, and recurrence.
- Research on environmental, social, and/or biobehavioral mechanisms underlying weight changes (gain, loss, and maintenance of loss), eating behavior, and physical activity.
- Dissemination and implementation research on energy balance interventions for cancer survivors and healthy populations.
Date: 2/12/14, 8am to 3pm
Time: 2/12/14, 8am to 3pm
Location: Cancer Prevention Building, Floor 8, Rooms 1-8
Speaker: Dr. Anne McTiernan
Speaker Bio: Anne McTiernan, MD, PhD is a member of the Division of Public Health Sciences at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle. She is also Research Professor in the University of Washington Schools of Public Health (Department of Epidemiology) and Medicine (Department of Medicine). Dr. McTiernan's research focuses on identifying ways to prevent new or recurrent cancer with a particular focus on weight control, physical activity, and chemoprevention. Dr. McTiernan has been the Principal Investigator in a number of randomized clinical trials and a cohort study focused on energy balance and cancer risk and survivorship, with funding from NCI, NIH, Komen, and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
