The Nutrition and Cancer research group is made up of a multidisciplinary team of epidemiologists, nutritionists, biologists and statisticians. The team mainly focusses on aetiological research into the relationship between nutrition and cancer. This includes dietary patterns, body composition and physical activity as possible determining factors for cancer, as well as genetic susceptibility in human carcinogenesis. The group also carries out research into the role of nutritional factors in the prognosis of patients with cancer and survivors. To achieve this, the group brings together traditional epidemiological approaches and the most innovative tools, such as the use of biomarkers of exposure and susceptibility.
