Research Focus

One major focus of our research in the Cancer Metabolism Program has been to understand how we can prevent the spread of cancer to other organs. Through our research, we have shown that aerobic exercise, like walking on the treadmill, reduces the number of circulating tumor cells in the body and potentially improves cancer prognosis by reducing the number of circulating tumor cells that can get to distant organs.

About this Lab

The Cancer Metabolism Program envisions a world where no one develops or dies from cancer that is caused by physical inactivity, obesity, poor nutrition, or diabetes.
