The Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship was founded to help bridge the gaps in knowledge surrounding the relationships between physical activity, nutrition, obesity, and cancer. Advancements in the energy balance research field will be used to optimize interventions to modify unhealthy behaviors, decrease cancer risk and improve cancer outcomes and deliver innovative practice-level changes to the clinical realm.
 
The monthly trans-disciplinary journal club aims to bring researchers from multiple disciplines together to examine a different energy balance-related topic each month. Our moderators discuss current research ranging from basic mechanisms of energy balance and cancer, effect of energy balance on clinical outcomes, and public health implications.
 
Center for Energy Balance in Cancer Prevention and Survivorship is directed by Karen Basen-Engquist, Ph.D., M.P.H
