Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer (TREC)

The NCI’s Transdisciplinary Research on Energetics and Cancer has been an important initiative to understand better the etiologic link between obesity and cancer. In one of the TREC funded projects (Project 3), we conducted a controlled feeding trial to test whether a low vs high glycemic load diet influenced biomarkers on the pathway to cancer risk, such as C-reactive protein and adiponectin. Broader collaborations continue with many investigators across the United States, including training the next generation of obesity and cancer researchers.
