Research Groups

Nutrition and Metabolism - Nutritional Methodology and Biostatistics Group

Rationale:

The contribution of nutrition to cancer etiology is complex and likely entails the interplay between numerous endogenous and exogenous exposures. Statistical models widely used in cancer epidemiology increasingly incorporate high-dimensional information, ranging from laboratory measurements, including -omics data, to questionnaire-based information on dietary, lifestyle, and anthropometric parameters.

The Section of Nutrition and Metabolism (NME) offers a unique research setting in which expertise on cancer epidemiology and nutrition meets biomarker and -omics research. The Nutritional Methodology and Biostatistics Group (NMB) fosters the methodological work that is crucial to integrate and optimize the use of these resources for studies of cancer prevention.
